I work mainly with woven tapestry and printmaking with the use of some handmade paper. My work is mainly abstract in character, the design arising from my interest in a number of quite familiar themes: their essential subjects are place and identity.
The imagery that I use is drawn from a variety of sources. Most recently it has derived from small 'fragments': fragments of materials such as fabric and wallpaper, which may suggest something to do with time and memory. I sometimes incorporate text and the use of a 'vessel' motif that may carry a range of meanings from a simple plant pot to ideas of a more complex nature.
