I am inspired by studying the natural world and recording my responses to places and things in drawings and photographs. The textures, colours, shapes and feelings captured in these observations form the starting points for my work but often the textiles themselves as I work with them reshape and redefine the look and feel of the final pieces.
I also take commissions for scarves, shawls and shades. These will be personalised for your requirements either for yourself or as special gifts. Contact me by email and I will arrange a socially distanced dialogue with you at my studio in Dringhouses, York.
