About me / About business or organisation:
My work explores the endless possibilities between colour, shape and texture on the human form.

I create unique pieces of “wearable” textile art that incorporate ethical and innovative fibres, materials and processes.

I am passionate about keeping our rich textile heritage alive with a focus on natural dyes and hand spun yarns, incorporating these skills into modern design.

I love to push the boundaries with my materials, combining textures that should not normally appear together and processing dyes with experimental techniques that have never been used before.
