I have taught art and textiles to a wide range of ages and for many years was Head of Art at a Sixth Form College. During that time, I have investigated self-directed themes and have accepted commissioned projects. I create my work by developing designs and compositions from drawings, photos and colour studies taken from my surroundings and travels.  My main medium is textiles and I enjoy working with handmade felt, hand and machine stitching and quilting.  During research and production new interests arise and lead to the next body of work that may involve mosaic or painting.
