Textiles fascinate me. I love exploring the relationship between colour, texture and composition and allowing these three factors to free flow between each other until they come together into a finished piece.
Each piece tells a story. The story is a journey of discovery; it starts with the seed of an idea and follows a fluid progression toward a final conclusion. The journey includes reflection, imagination, experimentation, application... and so much more!
The natural world is the inspiration for my designs. I love our Cornish landscapes. Coast and countryside both have an unequalled beauty and I enjoy observing, photographing and absorbing the environment around me in every season. The creativity of translating personal experience into a finished piece is enormously satisfying.
