My work in textiles is an expression of my personal connection to the land: its geography, natural history, human impact, myth and story.
My usual technique, developed to create a greater texture and a sense of the unconventional, is knitting but not to a pattern. I decide, as I work, from row to row, stitch to stitch, how each piece will develop. However, it is not random. There is an understanding of how the finished work will appear and I work to achieve this by immersing myself in the action of making, responding to the material and the form it will eventually take.
