I combine my love of textile techniques, fashion design and everyday materials to create works of texture and grace. Necklines, fasteners, ruffles, pleats and decoration of traditional costumes as well as textile patterns from around the globe inspire me. My obsessive nature draws me to the repetitive looping of knotless netting. One piece informs the next and the cycle repeats. I aim for the viewer to find the finished works both elegant and curious.
