artist statement

I’m a textile artist working in Vancouver, BC, Canada. My main focus is embroidery and I love to create detailed texture with fabric and thread. My recent themes include marine life, birds and colourful gardens inspired by the flora and fauna of the west coast.

I often work with textile scraps including waste fabric from quilts, thrums from weaving and bits and pieces that I’ve collected over the years. Most of my materials are cotton, but I also use some silk, wool and rayon. My techniques include quilting, embroidery and needle-felting.
