I am passionate about working with different textiles and manipulating these to create contemporary art. My creative journey began three decades ago with a strong background in quilting. Since then I spend my time finding creative ways to break the traditional rules. As a Fibre Artist I experiment with strange combinations of bright colours and different textures. I find studying and inventing new techniques to create my work deeply fulfilling.
Through experimenting, I discover and invent new techniques. I share this knowledge in my teaching practice with people everywhere to empower them with the confidence to use these skills when they create their own work. I love sharing my enthusiasm for fabric manipulation and I am passionate about working with students who want to learn how to create their own unique artworks by using my techniques.
With a background in domestic machine quilting and a number of prize winning quilts locally and internationally, I was chosen by Bernina as ambassador for quilting in South Africa. I have an innovative approach to quilting on a longarm machine which I use to turn clients' quilt tops into their very own masterpieces.
