I am the Owner of The Workhouse Gallery, 5 Ashton Square, Dunstable, Lu6 3sn.
I have a changing display of work in permanent display in this Gallery.
A Degree-educated natural dyer/contact printer, who creates handmade sketchbooks and scarves; nature-inspired stitched textiles and semi-abstract watercolour landscapes using handmade, natural dye pigments.
My love of natural forms, colours and textures is seen in my sketchbook exploration of local and visited landscapes; experiments with making my own pigments and the revelations of the printmaking process. I am excited by the unexpected joys discovered in the natural dye pot and in leaf prints together with the ‘out of the blue’ results of Cyanotypes, developed in the sun.
I am always looking to develop my craft. I love to combine processes such as print, collage and batik. I frequently reuse old textiles, prints and artwork. I also enjoy creating project work based on local and social history.
