Most of my work celebrates our obsession with genitalia. The distortions of textures and colours in fabric combine both the pride of the subject with the joy of the observer. This embodies both anticipation and recollection; it is a loop in time with no beginning or end: is it love?
is it sex? or just our usual obsession?

After many years of experimentation with different techniques using rope, thread and fabric, I now work in a medium which perfectly suits my concept of sensuality and my ideas on the mystery of life as seen from a completely female angle. Working with textiles is sensual in its own right, the fabrics are pliable according to their many different textures, and a delight to the eye.
My work mainly explores sex and reproduction, which might fairly be called the major obsession of all living creatures on earth, and I include the intangible concept of love, the principal obsession of human beings.
