My love for fashion and the theatre has led me to explore fabrics in paint. Not only do I savour the technical challenge of getting the viewer to ‘feel’ the textures of these fabrics, but I am keen to show you their beauty and their history. Fabrics are so closely intertwined with our culture, our place in it, and how we see the world. Historic pieces can transport us back in time and tell us a story long forgotten. I cannot think of something more full of stories, history and associations than fabrics.
