I am an International Textile teacher, living in Kimpton, Hertfordshire, UK
Artist / Fibre / Fabric/ Designer-Maker/ Quilt maker / Felt Maker
My inspiration is taken from the natural world; the woodlands of the Chilterns where I have lived for 30 years and the coastlines that are enjoyed in all weathers for their changing vistas, mesmerising and sometimes dramatic waters. Since 2007 I have been returning to Australia to experience the rainforest and reef.
Creating colour on cloth is the starting point of my textiles, which often feature painted silk layered with felted wool fibres. Working with natural fibres invites a sympathetic response, learning from the different qualities in the fibres has an element of risk and exploration.
I regularly exhibit with the Contemporary Quilt Group of the Quilters Guild and have made monthly Journal Quilts since 2007.
