Welcome to my world of art

Mark making is the centre of my practice.  I use fabrics, thread and stitch to create my textile pieces. My art is characterised by strong sweeping lines, vibrant colours and stitched details that add tactile texture. I adopt quilting techniques that bring relief and sculptured effects to my work.

I live in a village near Chichester.  The landscape of Sussex provides a continuous source of inspiration for my art. I am fascinated by how nature and history have shaped the chalk Downlands and coast. The marks made by fields, woods, paths, old tracks, hedges, flints and settlements are of special interest to me. I love to go out with my sketchbook and camera to experience all moods and weather. I draw, make notes, lines and scribbles to capture my immediate responses to the place. Back home I work on cloth to capture what I have seen and felt.

In 2013 I  gained a Foundation Degree in Stitched Textiles (distinction) from Winchester University.   I am a member of the group of textile artists called ‘Marks and Stitch’. http://www.marksandstitch.com and a Licentiate Member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
