I am a textile designer/maker with a special interest in weaving. I weave with delicate dyed and painted threads. Through the interplay of shadow and light, and the use of curves and drape I try to introduce the idea of movement and change into my weaving.

My work is informed by fleeting changes in nature; of skies, ripples of wind and water, reflections and shadows.

Materials used are mainly natural fibres, especially silk, which I colour by painting with dye solutions, thereby making each piece unique. I also like to experiment with more unusual materials such as copper wire, soluble thread and 'found' materials.

Work ranges from gossamer-fine silk scarves and wraps, to 3D pieces for interiors.

Other recent work includes vivid blue Cyanotype prints created using the power of the sun.

I regularly exhibit, take part in Open Studios, and sell through galleries. I also work to commission.

I am a qualified teacher and run workshops on a variety of textile skills, both at my studio and for schools and groups.
