I work from my garden studio creating one-off textile pieces with dyed or printed cloth, embellished further with free-motion stitching and hand embroidery. Inspiration is drawn from my surroundings, the landscape, wild flowers, the ever-changing weather or the beautiful ocean. Experiments are made with different materials and processes, often challenging myself and the materials trying to capture the essence of the subject matter. The end results come in a range of forms to include framed or mounted artworks, journal covers, lanterns, textile bowls and button brooches.
These labours of love can form the foundations for commissions, group talks and courses.
I will be exhibiting my work alongside two other artists, Tor Hildyard and Dannie Z Alexander working variously in print and sculpture.
