I love to echo structures and processes from nature in my art, from the mathematical basis for a spiral shell to the chemistry of leaf prints on pavements. I find the alchemy of transforming fluffy sheep’s fleece into a robust felt sculpture or using common garden weeds to create delicate marks on fabric endlessly fascinating.

Living in a city offers plenty of opportunities to observe the interaction between urban life and nature, providing inspiration and sometimes materials for my practice. Nature is often ephemeral, but I relish trying to capture its essence in more permanent form in my work. I use various techniques for this: my favourites are wet felting, natural dyeing and basketry.
