Announcement   Coming from a traditional quilt-making background of 30 years, for the past 10 years I've been pushing the boundaries with textile and fibre, trying to achieve total abandon in my chosen art medium of textiles and mixed media.
My collection of vintage textiles, recycled fabrics, old crocheted doilies and linens that have seen better days, is vast.
My satisfaction comes from being able to include my eclectic mix of ephemera and haberdashery in a manner that pays tribute to their former makers. It is rewarding that these vintage gems from the past, can now be given another life, in a novel form, which generates a story from the past along with texture and interest.
I love all things vintage, nostalgia, memorabilia and signs of the aging process.
I dye, paint, rip, tear, rust and manipulate fabrics to bring about the desired objective along with incorporating embroidery and other techniques to create original art.
Surfaces that excite me are thick with layers from the past, peeled, rusted and corroded, similar to the facade of a old painted wall or an old relic; To recreate these effects is what I strive for. Effects that are rich in colour, texture and history. These, like the ancient, medieval walls in Venice, have a very emotive power over me.
Being an avid recorder of my travels, my camera is always at hand, along with my journal. These companions provide me with a continual source of inspiration.
Nature and trees also play a huge role in my artist life and I haven't done nearly enough in that area yet.
