Hello and welcome to my web shop.
I am an independant artist working in mixed media making wall hangings, jewellery and prints. I hope you will enjoy looking round my site and if you would like more information, to discuss a project or a collaboration please get in touch.
Much of my work uses recycled or repurposed materials with the exception of printing inks and paints, I do however use sustainable cotton papers, recycled card mounts with biodegradeable cellophane for protection and display purposes and eco-friendly jewellery boxes.
A little bit about myself…
Born in an RAF hospital in Wegberg, Germany, travel and change became a large part of my early life. This continued into my student days and beyond, taking me to the Middle and Far East, South East Asia and Australasia for travel and for exhibitions of my work. The textures, colours, cultures and emotions travel brings became my inspiration.
Completing a BA in Embroidery at Loughborough followed by an MA at the Royal College of Art, 1979/81, I then took a studio in Clerkenwell Workshops, London and began working full time as a multi media/textile artist.
Leaving London in 1995 for rural Devon I finally relocated to Torrington in 2015.
I work intuitively creating abstract textile canvases exploring an idea/emotion through colour and texture using thread, fabric and mixed media. Layering of stitch, paint, texture and fabric are integral to the work defining shape, colour and space. These ideas, once triggered, create a momentum through which a series of pieces emerges that have a kind of narrative where there is a start and a finish. These times of making are very intense and once spent I turn to other creative outlets such as print, jewellery and drawing until the next series emerges.
I do apologize, I am having to rebuild my site. New items are being added every day so please check in again.
