I am a textile designer and tutor, working with fibre, yarn and dyes in the UK. My particular passions are colour, in the form of natural and synthetic dyes, and silk fibres. I have an eclectic approach to the creation of textile pieces and consider it essential to move from inspiration to final piece using whatever technique I feel is most appropriate. Spinning, weaving and dyeing are the most frequently used, but paper-making, batik, embroidery, knitting and braiding all have their place in my work.
My blog talks about the silk worms that I raise and I also now have a few sheep.
