How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

My designs come from the process and experimentation of weaving. The most intriguing aspect is throughout the entire process the colour and fabric changes. From initial card windings, making the warp, putting the weft through, to washing the fabric and turning it into its final product, at every stage you see the fabric in a new light. I love the process and seeing it through to a piece of fabric, into a product for someones home.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

It means being able to work in my studio and use my loom everyday. Building my collection of beautiful lambswool and expanding my range of colours, knowledge and product range.
Being able to turn cones of wool into bespoke luxury fabric.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

​Handwoven Textile Designer. Providing a bespoke service, working with retail and customers one to one to create bespoke fabrics for the home.
Weaving the fabric myself, means I can source yarn colours and put them together to design a fabric exactly to someones brief.
