About

I create unusual textile art pieces using traditional techniques such as: inkle weaving, lucet braiding and button making. I work intuitively, research fuelling my imagination. Sometimes an underlying political, social or historical issue surfaces and it may become the focus of a piece. At other times humour plays a part. The work is very time consuming, meticulous attention to detail is paramount, my goal to blend concept and content as simply as possible.
