About Me

Personal Statement

I studied textile design in the Borders, then wove for several years on a Scottish-built floor loom. Once I learned hand spinning I incorporated many original yarns in my shawls and rugs.
Hand spinning has remained a constant in my life and I currently use a Lendrum wheel built in Canada. I blend natural fibres in a multitude of shades to produce one-off skeins of richly coloured merino-based yarns. These are bought mainly by handknitters though weavers enjoy them too.
Following an opportunity to work closely with artisans in India in several textile disciplines, I have developed a range of hand dyed natural indigo yarns. That glorious blue proves irresistable and I often experiment with fabrics and papers in the dyepot.
A long term love affair with paper and print means that I also make artists' books and mixed media collages.
Visitors are welcome to my workspace in the Borders countryside - a call, text or email is advisable first though, to make sure I am in.
