“My artwork has developed from producing functional textiles for interiors and fashion uses, into multimedia textile art which can be appreciated as contemporary artworks. I am passionate about surface and stitch and my work is a response and interpretation of my photographs, drawings and observations of the natural world – symmetry, pattern, and life cycle processes within organic and natural forms are represented in fibre and thread.”
Collage techniques with handmade papers and vintage fabrics are used to create a surface for hand and machine embroidery. Each piece is unique and contains organic dried and pressed leaves, found objects, stamps, labels and painted imagery. Most fibres and threads are of natural origin and hand dyed. Current work includes a range of contemporary framed textile artworks inspired by botanical illustration.
