Though Mum taught me the basic skills of needlework it wasn’t until the 1990’s that my need to make beautiful textile pictures was ignited. I had an invitation from a friend to visit an end of year Creative Studies Show at South Nottingham College, Clifton. Never before or since, have I seen the most amazing and wonderful examples of work by the students who studied there.
A few years went by and then I was able to attend myself and studied for 3 years gaining 3 City & Guilds Certificates. When this period came to an end, it was time to put into action the many skills I had learned and get on with all those ideas I had stored up.
I now attend a selection of Art & Craft Events throughout the East Midlands including Notts Open Studios and more recently the ABC Art Trail in the Attenborough, Beeston and Chilwell area. I have a close association with Attenborough Nature Centre where I have an exhibition every March and help organise their Art & Craft Fairs.
I also have had and look forward to more solo exhibitions in the future.
