I am a textile artist working from my home and studio situated in the depths of the South Norfolk countryside.

Inspiration comes from surroundings at home and away, historical artefacts, visits to museums and galleries, scientific discoveries & adventures.  I use my sketch books to develop ideas and inspire work. 

I studied “Textiles” with the Open College of the Arts and “Embroidery” with City & Guilds.  I have exhibited independently, with the Embroiderers’ Guild and with TOPstitch. 

I am a member of “TOPstitch”, an exhibition group (website) comprised of traditionalists and contemporary textile artists using hand and machine embroidery and mixed media who meet to encourage and inspire each other, experiment and develop creatively, of “Threadheads” a small group of experimental textile artists (website). I have joined STARS (Stitch and Textile Art in Suffolk) and the Norfolk Contemporary Art Society (website).
