As a Textile Artist I work generally with old, used or damaged fabrics bringing to them a new life, in the form of images that evoke memories and an appreciation of traditional materials.

I have recently started working in 3-D, referring to my work as "Stitched Sculpture". Working with a needle and thread "in the round" is exciting, a learning experience and an interesting challenge.
I have an infatuation with textiles made from natural materials; I consider them to be almost a living species. Certainly, they were all living before manufacture and I feel that movement and adornment only enhances their lives. As "living forms", textiles deserve respect.
