Eco-printed Textiles and Paper

I live and work in the Howardian Hills AONB. I create ecoprinted textiles, both wearable and decorative, including wraps, scarves, wall-hangings, cushions, paper installations, journals and cards. The art of ecoprint is the culmination of weaving together of many threads in my life. First and foremost a love of the natural world which is my chief inspiration. A life-long love of art, textiles and plants fired my journey to find my own unique artistic gift. This has empowered me to bring these things together through discovering how plants and textiles interact. The process of ecoprint [where real leaves are folded or rolled in natural fabric and steamed or boiled] has been such a journey of discovery of the properties of plants. There’s a secret chemistry that takes place to enable leaves to make their image on the fabric, through the unique botanical signature of each plant. It is my pleasure to share this knowledge in workshops at my studio in Cawton and other venues.

 

Previously I have been at Ryedale Open Studios ‘21, NYOS, Art& York, Niche Gallery Northumberland, Woolfest, Burton Agnes Garden Fair. I’m really delighted to be Artist in Residence at the Yorkshire Arboretum [Castle Howard] 2021-22. In 2022 I look forward to being part of a collaborative exhibition at Lumen Studios London. I am happy to receive commissions.
