Bio:    As an artist who has always liked to knit and sew, I apply fiber art techniques to paint and canvas.  Currently I am dyeing canvases and applying to them, variously, acrylic paint and stitching. In the future I will continue to express the tropes of the domestic arts in the context of fine art.

Apart from reflecting crafts, the overriding theme of my work is order. I am fascinated by geometry, especially crossing lines and the way they can suggest the containment or suppression of disorder.
