Artists Statement

I have been making art quilts since 1994 and have been a member of Quilt Art since 1995. My book Colour in Art Quilts was published by Batsford Books in 2011.

My recent work has been concerned with the cycle of the seasons exploring it through its changing colours and textures and from the beauty to be found in both decay and rebirth.

I investigate my subject matter through photography and drawing and in the process of observation, contemplation and in time spent walking in the countryside. In my latest work I have been observing the shape, pattern and structure of garden flowers to create a series of quilts that reflect this interest in the details to be found in plants, this has resulted in my palette becoming more vibrant and upbeat.

I think I am quite formal in my approach to creating work, colour is probably the most significant aspect in my work, I am interested in its emotional effect on our senses and in how it can convey mood and atmosphere. I dye, paint and print all my own fabric.
