Working with fibre is a life-long passion that attracts me with its colour, texture, versatility and availability. Fibre invites me to express my creativity through the traditional art and craft of rug hooking and the other fibre arts. Rug hooking is a low-impact way to link my commitment to rural sustainability with the limitations of living in an off-grid home.
I believe art can tell stories about the social, cultural, economic, and environmental landscapes of our communities. Building on the distinctly Canadian craft of pulling strips of recycled and hand-dyed wool through burlap, linen or cotton backing, I craft original one-of-a-kind pieces, large and small. My work runs from geometrics to landscapes; from abstract to primitive. Tactile art for floors and walls.
