Artist's statement:

Needlecraft was part of the curriculum at primary school and from the first time I pushed a needle trailing purple thread through a piece of Binka I have loved stitching. I hoarded coloured wools and silks, darned for contrast rather than invisibility, and whatever the project was always passionately carried away with embellishment.

I had no formal art school training and only began making textile pictures a few years ago. They are a combination of relief applique figures cut from recycled knitwear, and backgrounds of dense woolen hand stitching, usually a collision of pattern and pictorial elements.

Ideas comes from stories, situations real and imagined, and from inspirational and beautiful exhibits in museums.
