Biography

Working with fibre leads me everywhere, its manipulation gives me infinite possibility of expression. Memories, experiences and emotions take over as I build and create. I am inspired by the pattern repetition seen in our surroundings, both natural and man made. Most recently, my focus has been on combining unusual printing techniques with three dimensional textile constructions to contain elements of both the familiar and the unexpected. The experimentation and the results highlight the versatility of the processes – something that I find very satisfying. Textiles carry with them so much potential for communication. Visual art that incorporates the use of fibre will often provoke strong emotional responses in us. I hope that my work will appeal to each viewer to consider textiles in new ways.
