Welcome to my website which is an introduction to my art practice .
I am a painter and textile artist with a passion for colour.
Throughout my career I have had a foot in several worlds having taught art and embroidery in Adult Education.
My embroideries are heavily influenced by foreign embroidery especially Indian.I have really enjoyed introducing elephants into my work. I use an old Bernina sewing machine and finish off applying beads by hand.
The paintings are in oil pastel and oil on canvas. Gardens and flowers are a big feature this year.
