A woven tapestry artist from Letchworth Garden City, with a Constructed Textiles degree specialising in tapestry weaving, and a commendation from the Simon Jersey Tapestry Award. After spending most of my career developing and delivering art education to the community, schools, and colleges I fully returned to tapestry weaving in 2017, which I continue to teach.
A member of The British Tapestry Group, The Wynd Gallery and various textiles associations I regularly exhibit locally and nationally, along with delivering talks, workshops, and courses.
In my work I explores a fascination of light play with a love of wildlife and beneficial flowers found in local habitats and am often inspired by my garden and walks around the fields of Letchworth. I create flowers on circle looms before embedding them in the tapestry backgrounds as they are woven.
It is important to me to maintain a sustainable art practice by recycling and upcycling fibres which has become an integral part of how I work, and often has a direct effect design and size of a piece, along with an exploration of combining fibres.
I source British wools and recycled yarns wherever possible for students to weave with when attending workshops.
