I find inspiration in a variety of forms from organic shapes to ancient patterns and work to develop designs that explore flow and movement. I am influenced by the world around me, both natural features and the actions of man. My work explores textures and form and I enjoy developing a variety of surface treatments to interpret my ideas.
My early training as a dressmaker and subsequent interest in patchwork and quilting has led to my work in stitched textiles. My degree in Visual Studies from Norwich University College of the Arts has expanded my approach to my art and given me the skills to seek a variety of interpretations of my ideas. I use both hand and machine techniques to create work that reflects my interest in texture and movement. I work mostly in silks and cottons and often dye and over dye my own fabrics to create the exact colours and effects that I require.
