about

My passions are colour and texture. Working in mixed media textiles enables me to create highly textured works using paint, print and collage coupled with hand and machine embroidery. I have been exhibiting for three years and have had work in local exhibitions, galleries and the Scottish Quilting Show.

I run workshops covering a range of experimental textile techniques and am a member of ButterFactory – a group of mixed media artists and Eden Valley Artistic Network

In October 2017 I was awarded the first Friends of Higham Scholarship. My project is to produce a body of work linking Geology and Art. This work 'Connections' will be on display at Higham Hall, Bassenthwaite Lake, Cumbria CA13 9SH from 11th November 2018 - 3rd December 2018.
