The inspiration for my work comes from the link between people and their environment. Using drawings and observations from countries visited and artistic styles enjoyed, impressions are put together to form an image of their world-creating a vision of scale and perspective. Traditional patterns are incorporated to bind together the images, using a combination of hand and machine stitchery, applique and collage. The excitement of colour on colour and pattern against pattern, create rich tonal qualities and deeply textured fantasy landscapes.
