Artist's StatementI grew up believing art was limited to drawing and painting - something only people with innate ability and special talent could do. For many years I confined myself to academic endeavours and, after completing my degree in Chemistry and Psychology, I qualified as a teacher and began my teaching career.
Fortunately, while researching the importance of learning through play, I began to open myself up to different forms of creativity. Subsequently, I discovered my passion for working with textiles. I enjoy the tactile experience of fusing bright colours, interesting textures and unusual combinations of pattern to create art in many forms including colourful quilts, wallhangings, soft furnishings, bags and unique, wearable pieces of art in inclusive sizes.
Gradually, my focus has shifted to working with reclaimed fabrics, wool, threads and other recycled items as I aim to create joyful, playful pieces of art with zero waste and ecological sustainability. I have recently become interested in making art and junk journals using a mixture of reclaimed paper, card and fabrics together with my own mixed media artwork.
