My one of a kind rugs / wall hangings are mainly contemporary in style using geometric patterns and stripe rhythms. Inspiration for new designs comes from everywhere, especially the all the colours and patterns I see in nature, landscapes and architecture.
As a practising textile artist I embrace the concept of weaving as an art form. As a rug weaver I am usually defined as a craftsperson. I design with colour and pattern and construct with form and texture. I endeavour to create a woven item which is both visually interesting and structurally practical. The weaving work I do is made to be durable enough for a floor rug, but their graphic quality makes them suitable for the wall.
For me, weaving is a lifestyle occupation which gives me a great sense of purpose. I thoroughly enjoy every aspect of the weaving process, from design to making. I adore the tactile qualities and the rich colours of the threads I use and find the action of weaving very engaging. Rug weaving is the perfect vehicle for my visual interpretation and expression. As a rug weaver I feel privileged being part of the International weaving community and continuing an important heritage craft tradition.
