Welcome to my World!

I’m an intuitive textile artist and don’t hold too much with intellectualising about my work.  

I have been very fortunate in having the time and being able to watch and learn from many wonderfully talented tutors over many years, and I want to say a heartfelt "Thank You" to them all (more details under "Resources").  I also have to confess to being addicted to all those tutorials available on YouTube.  My artistic development is therefore an ongoing process and everything adds to my set of skills.  The exciting thing is to be able to make use of them all when the opportunity presents itself and inspiration strikes.  

My work is quite varied:  I make fabric collages, do a lot of detailed hand- and machine-stitching and I like to bead things to within an inch of their life!  Strong colour is what I am happiest with, although I have to have the occasional 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 cat and my sewing machine purring away .

On this page you will see a tiny selection of my work - see more in "Gallery".   The "Current Exhibitions" page will show you if I am currently exhibiting somewhere.
