I work with mixed media textiles making installations that reflect my concern for the environment and particularly those of the sea, the death of coral and depletion of fish stocks caused by pollution and global warming. I experiment with and explore the particular qualities and reactions of fibres like silk, wool, paper, wire and wax. Using this experience I create three dimensional structures. My aim is to intrigue and interest the viewer without being didactic. Hopefully, on closer inspection my concerns become apparent; the destruction of valuable natural resources.
