I’m a textile artist and teacher based in the UK. Over the last ten years I have been developing and inventing textiles using weaving, plaiting, knotting and manipulating fabrics and threads to create textile pieces and fabrics that are innovative and exciting.
I hope you enjoy the examples of my work here, and spend a little time in the art galleries which show my work.
My little sister got married this summer – I created these two little characters using amigurumi techniques. They finished off the cake nicely.
It’s fun to go back to two-dimensional work every now and then. Here are two poster copies i made for the school musical – I’ve discovered a new love for coloured pencils, the blended tones and three-dimentional effects you can create are brilliant to create.
A0 – Paint and collage
This is quickly becoming my favourite material to work with. With tablets and books being digitalised there are lots of books being thrown out. I love working with paper and text, plus the colour of the pages are often vintage browns which leaves a great surface to the folded paper.
A quick signature using a large piece of drift rope! Imagine kitting with that!
These little designs are the start of jewellery pieces. Using folding and fabric. They also photographed well on the grass in the garden.
Some shots of my work when it was at a show recently!
I had a fantastic time in the London graduation show. Lots of interest in the large-scale tying pieces. London was hot that week!
