Hello

After graduating from Winchester School of Art in 1994 I worked as a textile designer for a number of years before qualifying as a teacher. After years of inspiring creativity in the classroom, I rediscovered my textile roots and I love exploring mixed media using colour and texture inspired by the landscapes and coasts around my home in North Yorkshire.
