I love to explore the everyday world in my art works and writing. There is magic in the the back yard, the beach down the road and over that neighbour's fence. I gather my materials, often found, and weave it all together to tell a story that is personal, maybe universal; thoughtful and at times passionate. I prefer to use natural materials like paper, linen, silk, wool and cotton, and the palette of the earth, sky, sea and tree. When my hands and heart are engaged I am happy.
