Hi to everyone.
I’ve been working with textiles for a few years, since completing my City & Guilds and various other courses. I have exhibited in several venues, individually, as part of other groups, and latterly as part of a duo with my good friend and fellow artist Margaret Horton. I love colour, and have used a number of different techniques and fabrics to create my pieces. I have found working with this group very rewarding, and found new ways to express my ideas in the various challenges we have set.
I have lived in Staffordshire since marrying (many moons ago), but I am originally from Gateshead in the North-east. We met while on a walking holiday and we continue to enjoy hiking throughout the English countryside and wherever we travel in the world. I try to take photos wherever I go, and hope to use those as inspiration in my other love – creating textile art.
I hope to continue to learn, experiment, and expand as we approach each challenge, and I am particularly interested in trying to incorporate paper and other media into future pieces. Watch this space to see how that aspiration works out!
