Nests and Basket Weaving


Nests and Basket Weaving Always collection and weaving, whenever a spare minute arises. Its a lovely way to pass the time at a park or school drop off and pick up. Creating something small that is portable and the material comes from the local environment means I am never without my work.

This is overstitched, I have a passion for keeping womens work and hand [...]

Place and Time


The recording of place and time by collecting windfall from the surrounding plants and using them to make images on fabric helps me make sense of where I belong, and of the stories that are part of that. The images that I record are not an obvious reproduction of the visual aspects that you see, they record the essence of what has happened there, both in the now and the history of the place. What has been introduced to the garden, unwanted weeds and the original habitat, it documents what was in abundance and what was falling off, the season, [...]
