Working with Textiles as an art medium has flowed so easily from my life experiences, it never occurred to me to use anything else. I love the feel of Fibres, the shine of silk and satin.
While my skills as a textile artist are self- taught I have a university education. As people do, I accumulated skills along the way. I stitched my dolls clothes as a child, learned embroidery from my Aunt, and made my own wardrobe for years.
I taught myself crochet, macramé and knitting. My graduation gift from my parents was a sewing machine. I learned to spin yarn from raw fleece and taught myself to weave. It was just something I did in my spare time. My success has been based on years of developing an artistic eye.
I feel as though the flow of creativity is endless and so the drive to continue is strong. Wherever life takes me, I am sure it will involve sharing from the well of creativity which comes from the depth of my being.
