I work primarily with wool, usually weaving or felting, but also manipulating into sculptural forms. Texture, added by knotting or stitching features in many of my wall hangings. I spin much of the fibre I use, and also dye with commercial and botanical dyes. Wire, plastic, textiles and found objects may be added. Inspiration comes from nature - the mountain, stones, trees, water, birds and fish often feature. Some works tell stories and express views and emotions. I also make functional items, such as floor mats, cushions, rugs, scarves and bags, and wool balls for little four-legged friends.
