  • Biography
Drawing has always been at the heart of my work, recording and collating, then exploring and improvising until I feel I am beginning to capture my idea. I use sketches, photographs and the computer to develop my ideas.

I work with paint as well as textiles. My textiles feed off my paintings which I then use to explore my idea further, using elements of shape and colour which can lead to a statement which may become almost abstract. The way the materials are used in my textile hangings is an essential part of the procedure as the texture and richness of surface is important to me. This allows the joy of looking at the part as well as the whole - the appreciation of the work being as much in the detail as in the larger gesture.
