Welcome and thanks for looking at my website.
My home and studio is 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. For many years I have worked solely with textiles, combining hand stitch with felting, machine embroidery and mixed media using traditional and new techniques.
I have experimented with weaving backgrounds for stitch and now am doing the same with painted backgrounds
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 have dabbled with watercolour painting but now am experimenting with acrylic painted backgrounds for stitch.
I am keen textile sketchbook creator and explorer.
