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

My work has always concerned it self with the use of Natural materials and hand work , enjoying their inherent irregularities, qualities the artist or craftsman has no power over and can only try to work with.
To me working natural materials whether that be silver & stones , textiles & dyes or paper & pigment, is a form of alchemy where the credit for the creation belongs equally to the materials and techniques involved as it does to the artist.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

To me being an artist means learning to understand the qualities of the chosen medium, respecting them and learning from them, also understanding the cultural traditions which evolve around any form of decoration.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I have No idea what to call my self, except an experimentalist, fascinated by the human desire to adorn and surround them selves with color & decoration.

I very much enjoy teaching, having held workshops on many textile related subjects, and believe that encouraging creativity and an understanding of materials and medium are extremely important.
