About my work.

Colour has always been the most important element in my fibre work. Seeing the rows of colour build and interact as I weave is a constant inspiration. Fibre colours interact differently than pigment, and each fibre content; wool, silk, linen, cotton, etc., has a unique way of reflecting colour. I am constantly adapting and mixing colours of yarn to get the values and tones that I want. This is what inspires me to stay at the loom day after day.

 

My artwork at this time is not about making a statement. There is so much strife in the world that I find I want to create simple, calm and harmonious art that can hopefully bring a pleasing visual experience to the viewer.

Beginning in fall 2023 my work will be available at the Artisans Cooperative.
