I am an award winning textile artist based in a small village in the North of England and have a studio near my home that I have developed to accommodate creative textiles courses. I love teaching and passing on my skills, ideas and enthusiasm to students of all ages.
I travel extensively for pleasure and my teaching, and make regular trips to India, Most of the textiles I make are inspired by my travels. I take lots of photographs and later use them to design and develop into quilts.
My work is colourful and contemporary, I specialise in paint, print, felt and machine stitch, and always use natural fabrics.
I have been participating in the Quilters Guild Contemporary Quilt Group Journal Quilt Challenge since 2007 and am a member of several International Quilt Groups.
My work is happy and cheerful and I hope it makes you smile!
My 2 self-published books and the several kits that I have produced continue to sell well.
