Samples of my work
As a textile artist working in Vancouver, my main focus is depicting nature through embroidery. I love to create detailed texture with fabrics and thread. My recent themes include marine life and colourful garden embroideries. My work is often composed of repurposed textile scraps including waste fabric from quilts, thrums from weaving, and bits and pieces that I've collected over the years. Most of my materials are cotton, but I also use some silk, wool and rayon.
