“Thread is my pencil; fabric is my paint. The artwork created is my voice.
I make fabric art because it’s what I love to do … To create something unique and reflective of how I feel. To explore sensations of interpretation and observation through the medium of textile and thread. To expand the expected. To follow an idea along an intuitive, spontaneous and progressive path. To play with flow and movement. To use the building blocks of abstraction, texture, colour, line and space to tell a story.
To unlock the secret hidden within each scrap.”
