Textiles

Colour fascinates me, and texture complements it. For some years my main work was interpreting maps, real or imaginary, in my textile medium.  I believe maps are an ancient and important part of mankind’s need to understand the world. More recently I have moved onto designing my textiles digitally: I start with one of my own ‘paintings’ or photographs, and put them through a variety of computer-base processes. The resulting design, usually abstract, is printed on fabric, layered and stitched. Colour and texture remain still my main way of expression.
