The need to explore my thoughts in textiles is a passionate driving force.
Playing with strong colours, painting in rich thread bringing together tactile surfaces in my textiles constantly gives me an amazing sense of excitement
Drawing from diverse sources - my love of all things Asian, exotic gardens, vivid landscapes and bold still life, I manipulate fabrics and threads to realise my own special vision of culture, colour and collecting.
The excitement of journeying, soaking up the diverse visuals of many cultures, both east and west results in bright bold approaches to my textiles with the effects of layering, transparency, and the gleam of metallic to create a rich painterly feel.
Extensive hand and machine embroidery, photographic imaging, fabric collage, applique, piecing quilting and embellishments are explored to add depth to my work.
I am continually exploring and finding new ways to express this
