‘I aim to make a connection with people through my work, to transport them to a place and a moment in time. I am inspired by the details in nature, the patterns, rhythms and textures. I want to create an emotional response in the viewer to the landscape that is important to me.’

I aim to capture moments in time as an artist who has colour, line and texture to play with. I consider myself a painter that uses threads, an artist that draws with a sewing machine.

For this exhibition ‘ Stitch by Stitch’ I have used photography and machine stitch. This creates depth, perspective and richness to the work and combines effectively with stitch to give detail and texture. The works develop stitch by stitch.
