About

The interplay of fibre and cloth, the borderlands between art and craft

I work primarily with textile materials, exploring the interplay of fibre and cloth, colours, textures, the significance of garments, mending and joining, what can be included, how it holds together, the beautiful potential of mistakes, flaws, uncertainty.

Now that I live on Tiree, a tiny, beautiful island in the Inner Hebrides, I find the colours around me appearing in all my work. I’m especially interested in using local fleece and outworn clothing with conventionally precious fibres like silk. I spin, weave, make felt, knit and stitch, sometimes in combination. I enjoy dyeing, printing and resist techniques. Some of my work is fragmentary. I take photographs, occasionally sketch, more often work from a starting point of words, or a fleeting idea, expressing it directly through working with fabrics, yarns and fibres.

Learning to use a spinning wheel led to a weaving loom, then more... I am lucky to have a Japanese Saori floor loom, designed for playful weaving. I use two spinning wheels, Cicely and Roslyn, and a large table in the kitchen is where I make felt and practise surface design. A table in my little office/studio holds the sewing machine and embellisher and sometimes a table loom. There aren't many places in our home where something textile related isn't either happening or waiting to happen.

Textile processes are slow, and endlessly captivating. I hope to be able to share something of their magic with you through the work I make: wearable art, wall art, and small things to treasure.

    I live on the beautiful Isle of Tiree in the Inner Hebrides, Scotland. Surrounded by sheep, I've started including local wool in some of my work. I'm exploring the ways in which fibre and fabric can connect with and complement each other.

Shipping
Please be aware that I live on an island! The post from here is almost always as fast as on the mainland, but all mail goes on the daily plane and very occasionally the plane can't land. For this reason I cannot offer a guaranteed next day delivery. Orders over £35 will be sent using a tracked and/or signed for service.

I try to use recycled outer packaging unless requested otherwise.

If you are outside the EU, you may be charged taxes and fees by customs as the package enters your country. As the buyer you are responsible for all customs charges that may be incurred.

Potential buyers in Australia - much of my work contains wool and items are likely to be quarantined on arrival in Australia. Please contact me before ordering.
Additional policies and FAQs
I do my best to photograph colours accurately as possible, but colours differ from one computer to another, so there can be a slight variation from what you see on the screen. If after receiving an item you are not happy with the colour, please contact me.
