Artist Statement

I am a textile artist and teacher. I trained at the Glasgow School of Art specialising in embroidery and weaving. I am an active member of Edge.

Currently I work from my studio in Port Appin. I am influenced and inspired by local land and seascapes, Celtic mythology, trees and plants. Techniques I use include dyeing, fabric manipulation, machine and hand embroidery, use of textile paints and handmade papers.

I also make decorative shoes from papers, fabrics and paints working round old shoe lasts.
