I am a Fine Art Textile specialist, creating large and small-scale works for interiors and fashion. I like to say paintings with purpose. My work has many layers visually and conceptually, using printed, collaged, drawn, and stitched mixed media. I respond to work from poetry/written word and am nearly always inspired by natural forms. I recycle and repurpose. Sourcing discarded objects making them precious again. I use the sewing machine as a drawing tool along with found and conventional materials. I am proud to say I won First Prize at The Oxford International Art Exhibition this year.
