I learnt how to embroider from my mother and have always enjoyed this form of art, either as an individual piece of work or to embellish garments.
From an early age I have loved recycling garments and materials. When crochet waistcoats were ‘hip’ I found a large blue net bag (used for transporting vegetables) and converted it. This was the start of a range of experimental work including bags made from cat food pouches.
Now, I use all sorts of recycled materials and media to produce a variety of items, especially handbags, and I combine knitting and crochet in my 3D work.
