"My artworks are a highly abstract representation of the subtle beauty found in the Australian landscape. I primarily explore natural elements unique to my local area and I love to draw inspiration from ordinary, everyday experiences.
In my woven art work this tends to translate as an emotional, highly visual and tactile response to the colours, textures, natural fibres and forms that I find myself intrinsically drawn to and intrigued by. I get a physical reaction and a beautiful energy from the materials and yarns I work with, they speak to me, it is a part of the art making process that I thoroughly enjoy."
