I studied Woven Textiles in the early 1980’s, through which evolved an intuitive understanding and response to colour and the tactile nature of textile materials. I strive to capture the essence of the landscape and natural forms which influence my work. I use drawings to capture a sense of the moment when I look, think and experience, capturing fleeting fragments of the landscape which are observed and absorbed as I move through it, looking at the familiar, seeing the extraordinary; responding to the subtle changes of view in the rhythmic motion of walking. I explore the evocative moods of seasonal change and atmospheric qualities of light and changing weather. I use the power of the stitched mark to add textural and linear qualities to spontaneous intuitive drawn and painted marks on fabric and paper. My work is a response to what it feels like to be within the landscape, a sense of the space around me, an impression. The scale of my works range from large individual hangings to small wall mounted panels and framed textile artworks. I welcome work to commission and am happy to consider invitations to give talks, workshops and courses.
