My interest in weaving began, improbably, on a cycle tour in Australia. Since then I have explored spinning, dyeing and weaving on my four shaft counterbalance loom.
My work tends to be functional although I have also woven tapestries. I use cotton, linen, wool and silk to create blankets, tea towels, rugs and scarves. Lately, I have been exploring linen as a fibre and rag weaving as a way to create fabric from discarded material.
