Embroiderer and Painter
I taught City and Guilds Embroidery for many years and in middle age went to Reigate art college followed by a degree course in painting and art history at Camberwell. I shared a studio in Reigate with a lively group of artists for some years and taught art in adult education. Since then, I rediscovered my sewing machine which has been a companion for life. My little 6x6 inch embroideries have all been mini self portraits in a sense full of quirky humour and a childlike enjoyment of elephants, birds and fish and lots more. During lock down I have been also painting constantly, both landscape and still life, enjoying the colour and richness of oil paints.
