In my home studio located in Armstrong in the North Okanagan, I create collaged vests, quilts, pillows, bags and scarves of deep colours and contrasting textures.

Using natural designs including plants, insects and ancient goddess symbols as well as celtic knots, I print on my hand-dyed linens, cottons and silks with silk screens and blocks that I make.

My work features acid-etched silk/rayon velvets and satins which create a low-relief sculpted effect. Collage is a strong element in my work, proposing a vision of a whole and mysteriously connected life to balance the frgmentation and spiritual emptiness of the current big corporate agenda.

Long live the Spider Goddess weaving her magic!
