Colour! I love it when it creates drama and impact
... when it dances before your eyes
... when it stirs the soul and fires the imagination
I was fascinated by colour from an early age. As a child, I loved sorting my coloured pencils into pleasing sequences. My attention to detail saw me cutting glace cherries up into 32 slices and arranging them in intricate geometrical patterns on top of my grandmother’s sherry trifles!
After a career as a graphic designer, during which I worked on materials for a number of well-known companies and charities, I have now turned my attention to textiles. My fascination with detail, and particularly with the intricacies of number, has never left me. My work is characterised by bold colours and strong, geometric shapes through which I seek a colourful physical expression of mathematical ideas. I want my work to lift spirits and make people smile! (And also intrigue them a little!)
I was privileged to have a solo exhibition of my work at the Festival of Quilts this year.
