I’m often asked what inspires me, but I never have a simple answer. Sometimes I’m influenced by the seasons and the colours I see in the garden. Often in the autumn I find myself dyeing with rich oranges, russets and browns, as if I am trying to capture the very leaves in my dye pots.

In the Spring I often end up dyeing lots of fresh greens and purples. It must be the crocuses!

Sometimes I’m just in a particular mood and want to explore the limits of one particular colour or combination of colours. Lately, it’s been greens and blues:
Cheviot Blue and Green Music

Cheviot Freshwater 2

Wherever my mood takes me, though, it’s great fun exploring!
