I design and make textile art, exclusively using my own hand dyed fabrics - cotton and silk velvet. The coloured cotton and silk velvet shapes are layered to contrasting effect with the different light absorption qualities of the materials producing both depth and impact.

Symmetric (circles & squares), asymmetric (quadrilaterals) shapes plus more complex curves are all used to allow complex colour landscapes to evolve. This use of both the strong rich colours of the hand dyed fabrics and the possibilities provided by geometry are key elements for my inspiration.

I have been on a journey with this process for over 20 years, starting using mass produced fabrics & “traditional” quilt patterns to producing my own hand dyed colour ways and my own unique designs.
