about me and my work

My practice is centred around the creation of original, textile art-dolls – meditative, emotive pieces, each telling a unique story. 

I explore my chosen theme using moodboards and abstract collages. As my ideas develop, I add mixed-media, textiles and clay, extending favourite pieces into the supporting works that accompany my dolls.

From this body of work, I am able to create the collection’s centrepiece – a unique mixed-media textile art-doll.
