Textile Art & Me

As a fifth generation dressmaker, I was born to sew. I am and have always been inspired by textiles. From the earliest age I can recall creating from the scraps on the floor of my Omi's dressmaking room.
I think I might have even re-modelled a few items which weren't intended to be cut into! Scissors should never be left in reach of children!

I have been "fondling fabric" for over 30 years. An un-cut piece of cloth can provide so many
different possibilities, often too many to make that first cut!

A small collection of finished works, including quilts and wall hangings, omiage and such are
on display in my home, and provide me with the inspiration and drive to keep creating.

Artworks available on commission basis only.
