"As a solitary weaver, the creative imagery moves me to weave.
In the hope of sharing my vision with you."

My love of nature and textiles blend with environmental awareness and the need for conservation. These two emotional issues that through creative expression can reach out to people to empower them. My current fine arts work as well as my functional art pieces have enjoyed rewarding and moving responses from the public, customers and myself.


My weavings evoke the natural world, raw emotion, changing light, movement & (gentle) harmony.

My work is nonrepresentational. Texture, colour and the incorporation of various materials and recycled fibers come together to create the detailed visual pieces that constitute my work.

My creative process is spontaneous and intuitive. I approach each piece with an openness, working without a predetermined image of the end product. I combine a variety of recycled textiles and fibers coaxing out unforeseen textural effects and surprises.


Chance and serendipity play a key role in my work.


Weaver,  professional gardener, avid long distance hiker and canoeing enthusiast. My love of nature and textiles blend with environmental awareness and the need for conservation.  From the outdoors I take the colour diversity that only nature can inspire, diverted textiles brings texture, dimension and warmth to my rugs. I have participated in Art Festivals across Canada: White Rabbit Installation project in Nova Scotia, Toronto's One of A Kind, as well as numerous smaller venues.


All of my weaving is done with recycled textiles, salvaged upholstery ends plus new cotton yarn for the warp. Each piece is a balance of colour, texture, design and function. They are woven on my floor loom, knotted or sewn for the finishing touch.
