I love to weave, to follow an idea through by interweaving fibres and creating textures is very special. I love the colours and contours of the land and sea. Scotland is very special to me, its mountains, coastline, standing stones are the basis of many weavings.

In my travels I have been able to explore different cultures and have time to sketch in many wonderful ancient places in Australia, Syria, Turkey and Armenia.  All these creative experiences have are woven into many weavings.

Dyeing with Fungi

Since 1990 I have been dyeing wool and silk using mushrooms and bracket fungi. You can see the range of dye colours in the Dyeing to Weave Gallery. I have attended many Symposia in Australia, USA, Scandinavia and Estonia. The symposia are hosted by one of the participating countries every two years.
