I am a Norwich born Textile artist, and have realised that textiles and art have always been in my life from an early age.
I have studied at Norwich city college and then onto Adult Education for a number of years. Giving that up to concentrate on my textile work. For 7 years I have exhibited in Norwich with a group called “In-Stitches” and regularly exhibit at Blickling Hall, Aylsham every year for the summer and then at Christmas.
My work is both traditional and contempary, using a variety of materials and techniques. I like to explore new ideas and experiment with different materials to produce unique artwork. Needle felting is my favourite at the moment, as I like the idea that I can use the wool as if applying paint to get a realistic effect.
Gesso, handmade papers, reclaimed and found materials are all used with different techniques keeping me always excited about what you can achieve with mixing the medias.
This year I have teamed up with Justine Williamson, also a member of “In-Stitches”, we have set up workshops in the Norwich and Bacton areas. These have been very successful and have future workshops planned.
Please contact me with any queries prices and availability.
Justine and I are pleased to present landscape in mixed media Workshops.
