Urban faces, spaces and attitudes made permanent in wool. The sass of urban life balanced with the pace of needlepoint tapestry.

I’m saying that our urban environment empowers the women who embrace the colours, reflections, lights and brights.

I’m inspired by the ephemeral and drawn to the mechanical nature of my textile arts practice. The repetition of stitches echoes the pixels of digital work and spray-paint used on the streets.

Ironically street art is fast, contemporary and masculine. Tapestry is slow, traditional and feminine.
