My work explores elemental timeless patterns, combining and manipulating natural fibres, mainly wool and silk.

By dyeing, stitching, knitting and felting I make garments, as well as pieces intended for hanging in interiors.

have always been interested in the relationship between body shape and the sculptural techniques of tailoring - how pattern and form enhance body movement. I am inspired by animal patterns and the rhythmic markings of bird’s feathers.

Layers of geological time resonate with the layering techniques of felt-making. My recent wall panels are a response to feelings of discomfort at the threat of fracking.
