Drawing is the foundation, the development of ideas, a challenge and pure joy.
Sketchbooks are the keeping place of drawing.
A lifelong love of printmaking connects with my drawing practice.
I enjoy creating artists books. Photography always.

This wood cut block was based on a drawing of a camellia from my friend and fellow weaver Lissa's garden. This block is being hand printed to create a series of fabrics for clothing and homewards.
