Within my creative work, my background in maths and science contributes greatly, as I explore the relationships between numbers and patterns that contribute to strong graphic designs, often woven in bold colours. I particularly enjoy exploring how small changes can disrupt and alter pattern. I specialise in weaving on multi-harness hand looms, working with up to 24 shafts, as I love the variety of patterns available. I particularly enjoy weaving twill patterns. Recently I have been exploring double cloth, using it both to experiment with bold blocks of colour and also to investigate the effects of mixing different yarns in the separate layers. In acknowledgment to my family history in the woollen industry, I love to work with British wool, although I also work in silks and bamboo as the shine is hard to beat!
