Studio Quilts

I make unique, special, ‘one-off’, individual quilts, wall hung textiles, creating my own visual language in fabric and stitch.

My ‘Studio Quilts’ are large significant studies – often measuring two metres square – fabric collages that hold a value and substance often connected with the awesome and wild landscape of the natural world, that I find increasingly important.

One quilt can often take me six to eight months to complete.
