"I discovered felt and everything changed".
"Having lived in Africa many years ago, there is a definite influence from that time on my current textile work. The vibrant changing colours of the skies, especially at sunset; the wide open vistas; the wildlife; and the people, with their continuing struggles, have all made their mark".
I now work mainly with dyed merino wool carded with additional fibres and textural threads. The tactile manipulation of the felting process always proves satisfying. There is always a sense of anticipation when trying a new and innovative technique: sometimes an unexpected result is achieved, giving an element of surprise as well as a new dimension to the work.
