Born in Nottinghamshire, England and gaining an honours degree at Lougborough University of Art and Design.
I worked in industry as a Textile Designer for several years only leaving when I married and started a family. When my two sons began their full time education, I continued to develop my interest in the three-dimensional quality the combined use of watercolours/inks and hand/machine embroidery can bring to artwork.
My passion of walking in the English countryside , throughout its glorious seasons together with my love of creative gardening I am inspired to explore the depth and texture which "Thread Painting" can add to the palette of the fine artist.
Painting directly onto the canvas I begin to build up the image with the embroidery , highlighting texture onto the details of the landscape, including trees, hedgerows and flowers.
Finally, I extend the embroidery onto and through the mountboard to give a feeling of continous perspective.
I stage several exhibitions throughout the year in the U.K.(visit my Exhibitions Page) and will consider commissions as I love a challenge!
