Creating art with beautiful textiles has been my life for over 30 years…

Starting with traditional quilt techniques over 30 years ago,  I quite quickly developed the urge to break the rules.

My fascinations with dyeing started about 18 years ago and I shared the dyeing with my husband Peter who enjoyed the precision of formula based dyeing while I was able to concentrate on more serendipitous and experimental pieces. Our hand dyed and painted fabrics are available through our Online Store Dyed & Gone to Heaven and sent all over the world. I also have textile art for sale and I am available for commissions.

I have a passion for sharing my knowledge and teaching and in 2010 I was awarded the Jewel Pearce Patterson Scholarship for Quilting Teachers by the International Quilt Association in Houston USA.

In 2013 my first book – Beautiful Building Block Quilts was published by C&T Publishing and in 2014 & 2015 I self published my own ebooks. I love the freedom of self publishing.

My other obsessions for food and travel have also opened other doors and I now travel all over the world teaching and leading Textile & Food Tours.

I am also a former President of Studio Art Quilts Associates (SAQA) and encourage all textile artists to join this wonderful organisation of like minded souls.

I have a range of virtual WORKSHOPS & LECTURES. Please check them out HERE

I also have a series of videos now available called QUILT STORIES which you can watch them on my YOUTUBE Channel
