Quilter, Wife, Mother and Kiwi
My journey into the quilt world is still in its infancy. Having a background in textiles I came into the quilt world in 1998.
I draw my inspiration from the world around me, whether it is from my travels, my background or culture or friends.
I find that most of my quilting has strong emotional significance, although visually subtle within my works, the process of creation is therapeutic. When engrossed in cloth and stitch I am at my most excited and focused, especially when using the stimulating and fulfilling, vibrant colours that I love.
I am always striving to progress and advance my knowledge and technique within the world of fabric art, and enjoy taking a variety courses that help me achieve this. I am passionate about passing this new found knowledge onto other quilters through my classes
My travels took me on another cultural adventure as my husband and I move to Bucharest Romania for a posting. this was exciting and too short.
Discovering new cultures and landscapes is something that inspires my work. Places such as Kenya, England and New Orleans are represented in previous pieces. I have had many experiences all across the world. In the future I would like to travel around Asia and see how their rich fabric producing culture would inspire me.
