“Drawing is the foundation for all of my work. I’m a prolific sketcher, sketching people, animals, plants and buildings – anything around of interest.

“I sketch quickly and it is the energy of the drawn line which I try to keep when translating into textiles. I love the spontaneity of a hastily written note or the repetition of an idly drawn doodle.

“I like it when I find some one else’s shopping list at the bottom of a super market trolley, these discarded and lost notes find their way into my work, they are my found drawings which I combine with my own to tell textile tales.”
