‘I graduated from Birmingham polytechnic in 1978, with a BA Hons in fashion/textlies specialising in weaving.
In 1987 I set up a workshop in Balnakeil Craft Village in Sutherland designing, making and selling cushions and wall-hangings. In 1992 I relocated to Kirkcudbright in SW Scotland and recently relocated again, just 15 miles out into the the beautiful Galloway countryside.
My work is inspired by the surrounding countryside, its colours textures and shifting light on hills and coast, while a lot of my cushions take a quirky look at its flora and fauna.
I have done workshops and projects with adults and in schools, including an artist’s residency in secondary schools and will give illustrated talks to groups.
I have undertaken numerous private commissions as well as several public commissions, and have had both solo exhibitions as well as having work in group exhibitions.’
