I am a textile artist working from my home and studio situated in the depths of the South Norfolk countryside.
I’d love you to follow me, this can be done at the foot of this and all pages. Do have a look at my blog.
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 have had many active roles within the Embroiderers’ Guild locally, I am a member of “TOPstitch”, an exhibition group (Topstitch website) whose aim is to raise public awareness of embroidery and textile work as an acknowledged and respected art form and of “Threadheads” a small group of experimental textile artists (Threadheads website). I have recently joined STARS (Stitch and Textile Art in Suffolk) and the Norfolk Contemporary Art Society (website).
