I work with mixed media and for many years have specialised in using recyclable materials of all kinds.
With textiles, a little like drawing with scissors, I cut free-hand, and make whatever the fabric suggests at the time. No patterns or designs are used: I prefer to let each piece develop as it will. Techniques used include applique, patchwork, fabric painting, embroidery and embellishing. Other techniques such as printing, collage, weaving, and photographic images are introduced where they can be used to effect. I do not adhere to any particular principle, rather choosing to mix elements of each. I combine new, vintage, and re-used textiles.
My artworks can be purchased directly from my studio, at exhibitions and shows, and through Artisan’s Flair – – which will be up and running soon.
I welcome commissions and will be happy to discuss your ideas with you.

please visit my  shop on Etsy  (which will be continually updated.)
