Personal Statement

I hand-spin and drum card locally-sourced Alpaca fleeces and wool from different British sheep breeds. These include Bluefaced Leicester, Shetland, Hebredian and rare-breed sheep; for example, Portland and Whitefaced Woodland. I hand-dye many of my yarns; this includes wool, as well as lace-weight mohair and silk. In addition, I design my own patterns that I use to hand-knit individual shawls, scarves and flowers. Furthermore, I design and create unique tactile fabric rugs. I am a self-taught watercolour artist, deriving my inspiration to paint from the flowers growing in my garden. I especially appreciate blooms with bold colours, an abundance of petals and those that stand out from the crowd. These include Roses, Dahlias, Petunias, Sunflowers and more recently Orchid Daffodils. I use my sketches of these flowers to create designs that I hand-paint on glassware such as vases and mirrors. This involves utilising specialist glass paints. I have my own purpose-built workshop to frame my work using professional equipment including a Morso Guillotine and Underpinner. I regularly participate in the Chichester Art Trail Open Studios and I am happy to undertake commissions for all aspects of my work. My website displays examples of my work.
