Inspired by the Norfolk environment, I enjoy working with natural materials that have a history, creating ‘new’ from ‘old’ and playing with the ideas generated by the tensions of life’s cycles. Photography underpins my working process and I also offer workshops in dyeing and papermaking.

My recent work is the outcome of several traditional craft skills in using natural dye to colour cloth and paper and I also make textured paper from plants.

I have developed a range of colours for individually dyed hangings, scarves and cushions - ‘Norfolk Naturals’ - by combining indigo from Norfolk-grown woad, with other dyes extracted, for example, from daffodil flower, berberis bark, ivy and iris leaf.
