I am a textile artist living on the Suffolk Essex border. I am a member of the Out of the Fold Textile Group and Tin Hut Textiles.
I am a Tutor for Creative Stitch which offers courses in Creative Patchwork and Quilting and Creative Stitch Textiles.
I teach each year at ArtVanGo and at the Knitting & Stitching Shows and Festival of Quilts. I also offer workshops and talks to groups throughout the UK.
I had such a lovely time at K&S at Harrogate playing with some ideas around layering up images using paper lamination and screenprinting with inks onto a variety of lightweight fabrics. It is not there yet - it is all just too light and bright for my murky palate sensibilities but I do think there is something to be developed here.
The first layer is screen printed onto a dyed cotton fabric base using inks and readymade thermofax screens
This layer is screen printed onto a silk organza which gives a lovely light transparency
This layer is using a combination of paper lamination of all sorts of painted papers with screen printed images on top
And finally adding some colour using Koh-I- Noor Dye paints
