Orange Textile 1Although I have a fashion background, more recently my love of textiles has moved mostly towards decorative textiles for the home. Maybe that comes from my love of pattern, as it enables me to surround myself with handmade beautiful textiles in my everyday life. It seems to me so easy to shy away from using such beautiful things like a hand printed tea towel or handkerchief, but there is beauty in the aging process of such things, fading and wear I think adds charm to a piece.

Colour plays a key part in this work and I like to use predominantly salvaged cotton fabrics which take an Eco dye very well as a base for adding print.
