My artwork in textiles is formed by many elements, such as love of colour, texture and the attractions of structures for containment, as vessels. The Canadian Landscape is also a primary focus. Colour is combined as preparations for tapestry weaving, the blending of many different strands of threads,wool,silk,rayon and metallic threads. Free motion embroidery in metallic threads to combine and add light and movement to my work.
