Art in all its forms has always fascinated me and I value drawing as a means of recording, planning and creating. My preferred media is textiles. I use fabric and paper embellished with machine and hand stitching to make wall pieces and home furnishing.
Recent work has employed used envelopes which I texture and paint to achieve a range of tones. These are torn or cut and fixed with stitch to a pre-drawn design.
My pieces tend to be quirky, loosely representational, celebratory, accessible and original. Their surface simplicity belies the complexity of ideas behind them and the technical knowledge that informs them.
I am currently working towards a BA (Hons) in Textiles to add to my existing qualifications.
