My design process involves extensive and thorough research and I approach it with passion and enthusiasm. The main theme of each piece I express in the colours, layering and piecing of the fabrics. Related ideas I then superimpose in the stitching and quilting process. Working in layers offers many opportunities to play with subtle nuances of meaning related to the topic. The outcome is an evocative and atmospheric response to the original remit or personal experience.
