I trained originally as a colour chemist, dyeing, colouring and setting up quality control procedures in industry. I started to space dye fabrics and embroidery threads for use in my own textiles and eventually produced them on a small commercial scale (for 21st C Yarns).
I use my dyed threads and fabrics in my own textiles, which often have a strong Indian influence, although the design is sometimes lead by texture and colour especially in my decorated bags.
I continue to experiment with making bags using as great a variety of natural materials as possible and also dye scarves in silk habutai and silk mixtures.
I take commissions for my scarves, bags and embroidered pictures.
