Born in Denmark, I trained as a weaver in the workshop of John Becker in Copenhagen. After moving to London in the 1960’s, I worked with Karen Finch, restoring antique tapestries.

Since the 1970’s I have been designing, weaving and exhibiting my own tapestries, which can be found in collections both in this country and abroad.

Working mainly with Nepalese handspun nettle yarn my work often has a mythological, mystical or meditative theme; some is inspired by the written word.

The weaving techniques are simple and traditional. The long slow work process is important to the development of each piece, and the aim is to produce a strong, contemporary, thought-provoking image, sometimes with a dreamlike quality. The brilliant colour ranges, and the diversity of texture in the different yarns, are a constant challenge and excitement.

I taught part time at Bath Academy of Art for many years, and have run workshops for adults and children. In 1998 I was artist in residence at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton and in 1999 featured in the BBC 2 Arts and Crafts Programme.  During 1998 – 1999 I worked with the community of Franciscan Brothers at Hilfield Friary in Dorset, where I taught some of the Brothers to weave.  I designed four large panels, which were woven by the community for their recreation room.

My book: “Tapestry Weaving” was published by Search Press in June 2002, and translated into Polish in 2004. It was republished as a Search Press Classic in 2015 and is available from bookshops, Amazon and other online retailers.

I am a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, the Society of Designer Craftsmen, The British Tapestry Group and The European Tapestry Forum.

I currently work from my studio near Bradford-on-Avon, Bath.
