  • Biography

    Like many women of my generation, I was introduced to the fabric arts at the earliest opportunity, at my mother’s knee with a needle and thread. This was the start of a long creative journey that led to a full time career in art textiles. I have been working as a professional artist in the textile medium since the mid 1980's.

    For my formal education, I earned a BSc in Agriculture, Majoring in Ornamental Horticulture, and have been studying developments in tree research since graduating in 1978. In my work I draw upon my background in science to create images in fabric which evoke the strong connection I feel with the natural world. Most of my wall pieces are inspired by the biology, mythology and symbolism of trees, classic emblems of the communion of earth and spirit. I create my wall hangings and framed textiles using raw edge machine appliqué techniques and embroidery, using an old classic industrial Bernina.
