The beautiful white, shell sand beaches, turquoise waters, colourful Machair, moody mountains and fabulous, big open skies.
My inspiration comes from nature and how light plays on forms, water and landscape. Textile art is where I can express my love of colour, design and texture. I hand dye my own fabrics (the only way to get the exact colour I want) and use applique, painted dye, paint or screen printing to create the image. I love the way individual layers of fabric, when joined with stitching become one, and very different. I like to push the three dimensions from a gently quilted surface to extremes, either visually or physically.
