I have acquired a rich cultural experience through my training as a museum curator and subsequent time spent at the London College of Fashion and studying for my MA in Textile Culture.
My interest are broad, ranging from Medieval and Native American inspiration to the relationship between women and textiles.
Recently I have been exploring landscape - a theme to which I periodically return - ranging in dimension from miniature to wall hanging.
The small hanging shown here depicting a jay is the first in what I hope will be a series of birds.
I use my own hand dyed as well as commercial fabrics and stitch mainly by machine (including free machine embroidery) although I sometimes embellish by hand. My preferred fabrics are cotton, but I sometimes add silk and linen to these.
