Bio

Originally trained as a cartographer and geologist, I still find myself drawn to themes of technical drawing, architecture, maps, plans and geometric patterns.

I often use scavenged and reclaimed fabrics, re-coloured and overdyed to create collaged backgrounds onto which I add sketchy details with my sewing machine. Nothing is digitised or programmed - it really is hand stitched using a domestic sewing machine.

Other pieces are completely smothered in stitch - none of the background fabric visible at all. Surfaces can be undulating and distorted.

I exhibit in the area with a textile art group - Visualise - and sell work through my website. I have recently closed my teaching studio - but hope to re-start some teaching in a new venue soon.
