Work in Progress




In 2019 I moved from the UK and settled in Geographe Bay, in the South West region of Western Australia where there is much to explore and inspire. A temperate climate with contrasting coastlines, ancient forests, fascinating geology and glorious wild flowers.
Further north in WA the landscape varies and trips to the Wheatbelt and Kalbarri have been so inspiring.

I am creating colour and texture in surface design through the wet felting process: ‘laminating’ wool to silk which demands that I engage intimately with the qualities in these natural fibres. Working directly with my hands is liberating, exciting, risky and yet calming, serendipitous. The cloth created changes with manipulation, suggesting further development with layering and stitch.






In my portfolio, a retrospective of all Journal quilts, one a month since 2007 together with many quilts and felts, some of which I couldn't bring with me!
