In my stdio near Horsham, West Sussex, I create unique textile sculptures, doorstops, fabric angels, embroidered tea-light holders and contemporary oil paintings.
Created from fabric and mixed media, the sculptures or art dolls are truly individual beings that are able to stand alone or as a group. Various hand and machine stitching techniques are used to create this highly original work.My contemporary oil paintings represent a construct of our world seen through my eyes and into the worlds of imagination and reality.I teach mixed media workshops and have had several residencies in schools and in the community.
