About Me

Sudbury, Suffolk, United Kingdom
I am a textile artist living on the Suffolk Essex border. I am a member of the Out of the Fold Textile Group and the newly formed Spotlight Textiles. I am the Principal Tutor for Creative Stitch which offers courses in Creative Patchwork and Quilting and Creative Stitch Textiles. I teach each year at the Knitting & Stitching Shows and Festival of Quilts. I also offer workshops and talks to groups throughout the UK in person and via zoom. With a foot in both camps I am also a member of the QGBI and the specialist Contemporary Quilt Group and STARS (formerly Suffolk West Embroiderers Guild)

Inspired by Kim Thittichai at an ArtVanGo workshop last year I am still playing around with paintednewspaper chenille and hope to work up a couple of 3D items for the Out of the Fold exhibition at Textiles In Focus at Cottenham College on 17th Feb. I just love the idea of using what is essentially free recycled material to make something new and interesting.
