I have developed a unique style of textile
art, which bursts out of the frame with life and vitality. The techniques I use to achieve this include fabric dyeing,
batik, hand and machine embroidery, hand made felt and applied pieces. The many layers are what makes my textile art so distinctive
and draws the viewer into the scenes.
