My work is inspired by the Lancashire and Devon coastlines. I like to sketch, photograph and collect interesting objects found on the beaches, and dunes.
The joy I get from my work is from the unexpected results I achieve from the plant dyes and rust which I use to colour my fabrics and paper. I combine the dyed fabrics into collages, allowing my work to change through the making. I like to include my shoreline 'finds' in some pieces.
I am concerned with embodiment of landscape, rather than direct representation. I aim to draw the viewer in and invite them to look closer and notice things they may well have overlooked
