Her textiles maintain a strong sense of character and colour is integral to her practice, working with it intuitively to create innovative combinations.
Research interests lie in the narrative possibilities of textiles: how textiles can be used to communicate, how they can act as repositories of personal or social history and how they function in communities. Large-scale works use motifs and symbols to suggest narratives or tell untold histories. Her textiles explore visual-storytelling and pattern-making.
