With historical artefacts or sites as my design inspiration, I create innovative textile art using digital imaging, soldering, needle felting and free machine embroidery.

History is usually the starting point for my research - architecture and artefacts get me sketching or photographing, and I take these images into designs. I review my observational drawings, sketches and experiments looking for patterns and shapes which I manipulate digitally. I am searching for images that will work as backgrounds for my textile pieces.

The chosen backgrounds are important as they are instrumental in determining the techniques I use and the colours and direction the lines will take as I machine stitch and build up the pattern. At this stage the initial historical starting point has almost disappeared, taken over by the creation of complementary designs alongside each other.

STUDIO: A light, attractive attic studio displaying contemporary textile wall art. There will be demonstrations of fabric soldering and needle felting.
