Textiles

Silk Scarves

I love to create intricate and colourful designs using the ancient Japanese shibori techniques.

Fine Crochet

I enjoy the tactile challenge presented by creating intricate designs with yarn and hook.

Hand Dyed Yarn

Born from a desire to create my own colour palette to crochet with, dyeing turned out to be a joyful expression of pure colour.

I have crocheted since I was a child and now enjoy spinning and dyeing my own yarn to create completely unique pieces.  The skills required involve precision, mathmatics and repetition, the polar opposite of my intuitive painting process.

I am a member of the Wigtownshire Guild of Spinners, Weavers and Dyers.
