Since studying geography the patterns created on the land both naturally and by human activity have always fascinated me. Using techniques of applique and machine embroidery with hand dyed fabrics, I make images of familiar places based on maps and aerial views, and more abstract images inspired by natural forms and landscapes. I enjoy experimenting with different techniques to reflect the subject matter, and am currently using natural dyes and ecoprints (contact printing of leaves and flowers), recycling fabrics as far as possible.
