I would never have arrived at this point had it not been for all those wonderful and talented tutors that I have had the good fortune to meet. There is a heartfelt "Thank You" to them all under the section "Resources". They have enabled me to build my skill set and given me the valuable gift of believing in me. Nowadays there are in addition all those great tutorials on the net and I have to confess to being a little bit addicted. My artistic development is, as with most people, an ongoingng process and everything adds to my knowledge.
The exciting thing is to be able to make use of all the techniques when the opportunity presents itself when creating a new piece of work.
My work is quite eclectic: I like to make fabric collages, quilte a lot of detailed hand- and machine-stitching and I sometimes like to add the odd bit of bling. However, I also spend a lot of time making wall quilts, which I absolutely love. My latest series is the "New York Beauty" series.
Strong colour is what I am happiest with, although I have to have the occasional visual rest by making a black and white picture.
Overall though I am at my most content when I can pour over a new quilt design, delve into my fabric stash, listen to Radio 4 and have my sewing machine purring away .
