Gallery

Welcome to my Gallery  where I can share with you some of my creations. 

I have always enjoyed handcrafts, I was taught to sew, knit and crochet by my mother. I would follow instructions and patterns to produce items. It was only when I went to University did I discover a freedom of expression. There were techniques to learn and instructions to follow but once the loom was dressed it was time to explore. 

This remains my passion. 

My creations may begin following a tried and tested structure but through experimenting with fibres and exploring the structure I am able to create.

Crammed and Spaced technique on the loom
100% Cotton scarf using crammed and spaced technique; this means that the warp is packed more closely at the outer edges of the design and graduates towards the centre spaced out, thus creating movement in the scarf.
