She was born in the United Kingdom but has lived most of her life in Canada.  Her home and studio are located in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia.  For over four decades she created woven tapestries using hand dyed and spun wool.  

She currently uses various methods of surface design on silk, wool, linen and other natural fibres to express her vision.

“In my work I attempt to capture, in a small way, some of the incredible beauty and diversity of God's Creation. 

I delight in the shapes, textures and colours around me in this amazing world, particularly under the sea. 

I enjoy using various techniques to express my vision of these images. I am grateful for the unique gifts 

that we all possess from our Maker and desire to use mine to honour JESUS.”

Soli Deo Gloria
