<ӣƵ class="elementor-heading-title elementor-size-default">CURRENT RESEARCH AND/OR CREATIVE PRACTICE

My artwork involves exploring the rural imagery of landscapes and domestic life through textiles and illustration. Dyeing, weaving, silk-screen printing, rug hooking, drawing and stitching are amongst the mediums that I work with.
Recent years have yielded extensive research in the creation and application of natural dyes from local and non-local plant, mineral and insect sources.
