I have been making with fabric and thread within guidelines for many years. I now prefer to allow my hand to wander the needle across the fabric without following a rule.

Leaf printing is purely an acceptance for the magic that each leaf will reveal. What is given changes with the season and the year and is seldom repeatable.

I have a large assortment of threads and yarns which I have dyed with natural dyes and leaves and barks. The colours are happy with each other.

Bookmaking brings my interests together. I do not have years of working with books, so I work without the benefit of knowing all the rules.
