York, YO32 2PW
I am inspired directly from nature, but also diverge into other subjects; the phrase ‘Earth Beauty’ sums up how I see natural forms, especially rocks, fossils and trees. I make semi abstract and also realistic, finely stitched textiles from my own digital photographs that I manipulate into images ready to transform into textile art.
I continue to find inspiration in the world around me; from garden flowers to historic architecture and experiment with different techniques and scale, which transforms photographic imagery into widely different interpretations.
I make and sell wall art, textile jewellery, vessels and other 3D items. Cards, postcards, high quality prints of selected work and copies of my book Fibredancing are also available.
