I have been fortunate to live a truly creative life since building our mud cob home (similar to straw bale – without the straw) with my husband in 2011. We live simply and creatively – his creative passion is mathematics, mine is explorations in line, form – and of course textiles. My weaving work is recognised internationally by the American Craft Council. I use raw materials sourced directly from the artisan – for example, ever so slightly waxed hemp yarn from a rural village in Thailand – and combine these with exquisite silks and other finds from Japan and France. My background is in Architecture, Education & Design.
