I am a mixed media textile artist working from my studio in Leamington Spa. I combine screen and mono printing, paint and stitch often into collages to create layers and depth to my work. I also like to up-cycle material remnants and papers and build these into my compositions.
My work is inspired and informed by the patterns and designs found in nature. From the more intimate surroundings of my own garden to the bigger, wilder landscapes and terrain of the 'borrowed landscapes' that shape our lives.
I am a member of the Association of Midland Artists (AMA) and the Embroiderers’ Guild and Future Rabbit Studio Collective. This offers me opportunities to exhibit in different settings. I am also a regular exhibitor at Warwickshire Open Studios.
I run workshops and take commissions.
I recently completed a large commission of four pieces for the Radiology Department at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire. And was commissioned to write an on- line tutorial for www.workshopontheweb.com . This went live November 2017. In 2018 I won an open competition to decorate the Christmas Tree and main Leamington Spa Art Gallery .
