In 2009 (2009-present) she also celebrated the first ever international ‘day of FELT’ (we felt united) as a member of the Mile End Felting collective.
After the birth of the artist’s first child she turned to the medium of fibre and hasn’t looked back. Her crocheted works vary between artistic and artisanal.
2009 also marked the artist’s return to canvas and a strong theme based inspirational series, Maitri, shown on the advent of the year of the tiger. 2011 was 'the year of the workshop' topping out at 12+ felt, crochet, and origami events for adults and children

The artist looks forward to Spring 2012 with many more workshops and exhibitions.
