Type of Artist: Textile artist
Technique: Felting, embroidery
Materials: Fleece, silk, but also mohair wool, flax, viscose,
cotton, nylon and metallic threads, or fabrics.
Inspiration:
Started her career in jewellery design but became frustrated, she felt that felting was
much easier to use colour than jewellery design.
She either chooses to create thick pieces with great control or loose thin designs.
Her thin designs known as her floating felts, are often of landscapes, displayed away from
the wall, with light projected behind as though it were the natural light on land.
She enjoys layering her designs and uses much gold which is inspired by the elaborate
medieval enamel, caskets, tapestries and glass wear at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
She moved to Dorset in 1995 which is when she discovered felting and drew much of her
ideas from the Dorset landscape.
She also gets her ideas from pop-culture and Brit Art, taking abstract words and phrases
from song titles like the Weather Gil’s song title ‘Me’.

Type of Artist: Fibre artist
Technique: Collage and machine embroidery.
Materials: Mixed-media (recycled paper and fabric, often uses muslin).
Inspiration:
She is a Professor of Design (Fashion & Textiles) at the University of California Davis.
She recycles text and materials to create her designs of everyday objects linking to
memories.
In recycling and cutting up the text it creates broken up fragmented ideas for the
audience to re-read and create their own story from.
She will often choose a theme like shoes to narrate (tell a story) through and the
audience then can make their own decisions on the meaning.
In using old materials, she hopes some of the older members of the audience will
connect their ideas to a past memory whilst others can create and be part of a new
story with the recycled materials giving them meaning and purpose again.
