Unique garments and accessories, innovative textile designs, prints and mixed-media pieces... Individual commissions welcomed.

Really enjoying exhibiting at the ‘Farlington’ house and gardens again on this year’s local Art Trail… Being able to display textiles against the light, gives them a whole new dimension – and provokes a lot of new ideas…

Just having some fun with ‘netting’ knots, combining a selection of threads, braids and strips of fabric in my workroom – rather like selecting ingredients for a recipe… The finished ‘pieces’ drape beautifully, and are not as delicate as they look…

I love the way some pieces of fabric drape and behave when they are mid-construction, and seem to take on a life of their own. This piece will become a patchwork shawl, when fully grown…

This was the favourite ‘seasonal’ garment in my display at this year’s Horsham ‘Contemporary Art Fair’. For the 1st time, I’ve introduced a ‘fake fur’ thread into the fabric of my classic ‘Evolution’ coat. The drape of this garment on the body is just SO luxurious…

I had such a great selection of re-cycled fabric strips, ribbons and fancy threads hanging-up in my studio, that I couldn’t resist simply knotting them loosely together to create a triangular shawl, leaving an extremely long, decorative fringe…

I couldn’t resist creating this tribute to ‘BANKSY’ and the ‘shredded painting’ incident of his work at a recent Sotheby’s auction. It’s just that most of my work starts life by looking ‘shredded’ ie. a collection of threads, that I then construct into something solid. So, who knows… Read More

It’s crochet time! What started as a ‘doodle’ (trying to combine 2 separate layers of crocheted motifs) has suddenly become more serious and I can see lots of potential ahead. But perhaps I need to use a more ‘sensible’ yarn…?

I’ve just started playing with large blocks of colour in my knitted ‘Making Waves’ shawls. I like the contrast between the underlying small, repetitive knitted structure with the large, abstract colour design…

Some examples of the commissioned work ‘in progress’ in my studio at the moment – I love having more than one textile technique to work on at a time… These pieces cover macrame and knitted fabrics with ‘woven-in’ strips of re-cycled fabric.
