Leith, Edinburgh, Scotland
My own private work is evolutionary, moving along at an irregular pace, adopting new symbolism and meaning where appropriate and dropping less important images once they have outlived their usefulness. Weaving is a process of growth, the natural way in which one activity flows into another until finally one begins the physical act of weaving. I take pleasure from the way cloth grows before me, the fluid movement of one cloth evolving into the next. Finding this flexibility on a fairly rigid structure is also one of the pleasurable challenges of weaving. This is a never-ending journey of discovery.

Being able to mix different colours & textures together in a way that lets me translate visual research into a woven piece gives me great personal satisfaction.
