I'm a textile artist working in Vancouver, BC, Canada. My main focus is embroidery and I love to create detailed texture with fabric and thread. My recent themes include marine life and colourful garden embroideries.
I have a Diploma in Textile Art from Capliano University. I've enjoyed writing magazine articles, presenting my art to embroidery and craft guilds and exhibiting my art. In 2006 I received the Visual Arts Development Award (VADA) presented by the CAG and the Vancouver Foundation.
I often work with textile scraps including waste fabric from quilts, thrums from weaving and bits and pieces that I've collected over the years. Most of my materials are cotton, but I also use some silk, wool and rayon.
