My inspiration primarily originates in Northumberland and Cumbria where I explore nature. I photograph the colours, patterns and textures, these are used to inform my textile artwork.
The exploration of colour and texture is further developed through dyeing fabrics, threads and textured yarns, I combine colours using variegated dyeing techniques. French knots are my favourite way of adding texture within hand embroidery and are incorporated into many pieces of my work.
