Working with my own two hands, a minimal colour palette and my fabric stash as my paint box, I create abstract art and functional homewares with textiles. Currently, I make wall-hangings and "paintings" using beautiful natural fabrics such as linen and silk, manipulating but also relinquishing control to the warp and weft.
My work is generally improvised using fabric I have to hand, although my quilts are meticulously designed and calculated - a process of many parts. I am drawn to "traditionally female" methods of creation, favouring texture and a simple modern aesthetic, rooted in traditional techniques. Everything I make is one of a kind with every stitch sewn by me and I believe that every hour spent on a piece shows in the finished article.
An avid researcher, I am largely self-taught. I heard someone say that there is a freedom in not knowing the rules... I'll go with that.
Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you'd like to discuss commissions, collaborations, exhibiting or stocking my work...
