Stitching from a very early age I am a traditional embroiderer. I enjoy a wide range of techniques. This means my work has great diversity.
I have exhibited widely in Surrey. Guildford Cathedral, Guildford House Museum, Denby’s Winery, Haselmere Museum, and Rampster In Dorset Drill Hall Portland, Nothe Fort, Oasis Cafe , Old Town Hall and Stone Pier Cafe.
My inspiration comes from the world around me. Holiday trips as well as the fabric and threads themselves are also inspiring.More recently I have used mixed media in my work, combining paint, paper and paint with the threads which gives the work a new dimension.
The last few years I have restricted myself to using up my considerable ‘Stash’ of fabric and threads which has meant i have had to be more creative.
Last year, I again started running short work shops primarily for people who want to learn from scratch but also for those who would like to extent or refresh their current knowledge.
