I am an artist that uses needle and thread to draw with, textiles and paper to create colour and texture. My goal is to translate the trees and landscapes around us into simpler forms but maintain their essence. I use a lot of repurposed textiles whenever I can in my work and try to use EVERYTHING up. I NEVER draw anything to use as a guideline on the fabrics or papers before stitching to keep the movement of the stitched lines as free as possible. All my work is conservation framed to help preserve the artwork.
