I had been working on my textile folio and collecting together work from my notebooks, dialogues and essays until a few months ago, when my personal life spilled over into my creative.
So I have taken another route and will return to this project in the future where it is intended that the exhibition will showcase my colourful and tactile textiles, whilst sharing my inspirations and the writing which inform my creative process with you. (in other words a sneaky peak behind the scenes!).
My work has been featured in Guild and the Yarn Forward Magazine as well as being hung in themed exhibitions throughout the UK. I conceived and was involved with the creation of the SpinDyeWeavers, a Bristol textile project in 2009, and continue to work on the development of workshops attractive and accessible to all levels of textile enthusiasts.

Polite Note: my textiles, designs and workshops have been produced and are run without support or funding from the craft council, lottery or other government agencies. Therefore a charge is made for my time when collaborating with others who are - this does not apply though to initial consultations.
