I have a background in art, design and textiles and taught for many years in the secondary and adult sector. Now that I am retired I am free to pursue the mixed media and textile art I enjoy.
Drawing, painting, dyeing, printing, gluing and stitching are combined in my recent works under the title “Out of the Blue”. This series of works is inspired by blue and white pottery, my small garden, rusting metal and the coastal scenery.
My enthusiasm for experimentation, my commitment to sustainability and my optimistic view point can be seen in the colours and textures I achieve. Expect to see the beginnings of a larger body of work embracing wall-art, gifts, soft furnishings and freestanding pieces.
