Welcome to my website.....
I am a freelance artist, writer and teacher based in the North of England. I work in textiles and mixed media. Felt-making, dyeing and stitching are the big cornerstones in my work. I love the way each textile piece is unique and says a lot about how I'm feeling at that particular moment in time.
My inspiration comes mainly from the Nature - she has so many beautiful colours, textures and patterns. I brave the cold and spend many hours sketching decayed plant forms in gardens, my local park and countryside. I use my sketches use as a source of inspiration for free machine embroidery, felting and other media.
A non-folding fan known as Uchiwa in Japan, adds a striking oriental look to any home. Made from up-cycled cotton fabric, the fan is tied on to a bamboo handle by lengths of machine-made cord. For an added twist, the cord is decorated with Tyvek® beads.
