About me

I trained 1970-73 as a constructed textile designer working on 16 shaft dobby looms. For a while I tried to work as a freelance textile designer but then retrained as an Art Psychotherapist. I have had dreams about looms throughout my loom-less years and so now I am retired I bought an 8-shaft ashford loom. I am experimenting and having fun rather than being driven by a particular project or wanting a particular outcome. I have arthritis in my hands so I am literally seizing the day and making the most of this opportunity. Using the discarded things in our lives excites me.
