My family feature heavily in my work.
When my children were younger, it was hard to find time to produce my work, but now they are my inspiration.
I am working with dyed scrim, linen and organdie to produce simple large scale line drawings capturing a moment or image of them special to me - documenting a recollection.
I love the calming rhythm of hand stitch, the pulling of the needle through fabric, the images evoking a special memory or moment seen through the eyes of an interested observer.
