What’s Happening

Lots of creativity happening this Autumn. I have just finished a commission to create a stimulation blanket, book and bag for a severely disabled young woman, with lots of textural stitched elements to touch, play with and crinkly fabrics that make noises and zips to pull. This has been a challenging but exciting and worthwhile project.

I was commissioned to write an online tutorial ‘Printing and Stitching a Picture’ for a Textile website which goes live in November. See this at

On 25th November I will be running a wreath decorating workshop at the Pump Room Gallery, Leamington. Book a place and get festive by contacting

Also November I will be at Gate Farm Christmas Fair, on Sunday 26th November.

I will be exhibiting with seven other artists, all very exciting. There will be painting, prints, paper collages, cut outs ceramics, textiles and jewelry. Come and visit us at 10 Grove Street, Leamington Spa.
