Artist's Statement

I was taught to use a sewing machine when I was very young, but becoming a textile - mixed media artist has been a 40-year journey.

I have a passion for rich textures. Distressed papers, torched metals, abaca fibre, wood and wire have all found their way into my work. I feel drawn to the juxtaposition of these hard-edged materials, against the softer qualities of cloth and threads. I enjoy challenging the expectations of traditional textile work and am happiest when I'm experimenting with new techniques.

"I believe that art is not determined by the medium an artist uses, but how they use that medium."
