As a child growing up on the land I was always a maker and creator and often worked alongside my artist mother exploring clay, paint, wire forms and stitch. At school I studied art, textiles and design and at university while studying education completed a sub-major in art. Now, after a long career in education I’ve returned to my first love; textiles and design.
I use the natural environment; the desert, the beach, the forest etc for inspiration, and use a camera to slow my step and focus my attention on detail. I love the beauty of nature’s imperfections and use thread, beads, ink, natural dyes to capture the essence of what I see.
