I’ve been weaving since 2011, when curiosity and a pursuit of a handcraft I could throw myself into led me to the Handweavers and Spinners Guild of Victoria. My first taste opened up the world of weaving and fibre art to me, and I’ve had at least one project on at least one of my looms practically every day since I learned to weave.

My interest is in colour and texture, and incorporating text into art. I weave the majority of my pieces on rigid heddle looms, which offer me the flexibility of using non-traditional weaving materials when I want to.
