Barbara works in two creative areas – hats and jewellery – with a common element of textiles, which she incorporates into both. She draws inspiration from a breadth of sources – both natural and man-made -and enjoys combining materials, textures and colours in unusual ways. Barbara works primarily with natural fibres for her hats and copper for her jewellery, incorporating other materials such as rubber, hemp, silk and leather – endeavouring to create distinctive pieces that will give pleasure to those who wear them.

Current methods of working: Private Commission
