I love to experiment with everything I come across and I particularly enjoy anything that is either innately curvaceous or which can be manipulated into curves such as metal, clay, silver clay, polyvinyl acetate, textiles and thread.
The textile aspect of the works I have been playing with since childhood when my devoted mother took it upon herself to teach me weaving, knotting, embroidery, crochet, knitting, sewing.....I really enjoy coaxing these skills out of their traditional roles and into the modern artistic context of sculpture and sculptural jewellery design.
