“My inspiration comes mainly from forms in the natural environment. I have lived on Great Barrier Island for the last seven years and feel the land and the sea have impacted significantly on my work.
There is inspiration also in the everyday objects that are used by humans, eg hinaki, seed fans, sails, a myriad of things. It is ‘form’ wherever it is found that motivates me in my work. The texture within a piece and the spaces created in between the weaving are prime factors in each work. “
