Having sewn from an early age, both at School and with my mother, and having taken my City and Guilds as a mature student, I took a great interest in Far Eastern Embroidery. I decided to follow the techniques of Japanese Shibori and Indian dying and tying techniques, and manipulating fabric. This can be done on most fabrics such as silks cotton suede and felt, which all give different results. I get my inspiration from my love of the countryside with its changing colours and textures, and get ideas for patterns from such as Stonewalls Wood bark. I also like to paint and use this also in my work.
I do workshops occasionally.
I take part in Pocklington Open Studio’s each year, and I am a member of East Riding Artists.
