YARNS AND TALES

Every yarn has a story to tell. The yarns I make are often in response to the places I live. I use spinning as a way to explore how people are connected to places and the natural environment. Recently I have created textile pieces in response to the climate crisis and the increasingly extreme weather events we are experiencing as a result.
