Focus

hand-weaving

About

My aim is to create unique pieces of artwork as wall hangings, and individual items that can be worn such as wraps and scarves. I am constantly fascinated with the exploration of colour, pattern, structure and texture, preferring the use of fine natural yarns such as silk, merino, cotton and bamboo which I hand-dye. My inspiration is mainly drawn from the variety and subtlety of colour found in nature, particularly the effect of light on water and the dramatic colours of sunsets.
