I create colourful art works and practical items from animal, plant and manmade fibres, primarily wools but also wire. Fibres are often homedyed, spun, woven and/ or felted, sometimes with the addition of fabric, recycled items, and found objects.Wire may be knitted, crocheted or woven, and manipulated into weird shapes. Inspiration comes from the natural world around me, as well as from my travels and political events. My woven wallhangings express a story from me, yet may speak differently to viewers. More recently I have been creating robust items such as ponchos and rough felted cushions, ideal for wearing while sitting and poking an outside fire.
