As a fibre artist I want to create things that are beautiful but still practical. From infant cardigans to one off pieces of statement jewellery the heritage of knitting and spinning are never far away. Working with natural fibres, sometimes commercially available but often those that are hand spun, provides me with a media that I can manipulate in many ways. Spinning and knitting are my preferred creative outlets and the contemplative aspect of these two activities brings a sense of mindfulness to my work. Living with the mists and light of the Blue Mountains of New South Wales provides me with daily inspiration.
