I have always been a creative person, whether in the the interior of my home, in my garden or in my artistic pursuits. I gained my degree in textile design from the Nottingham Trent University where I concentrated on constructed textiles, chiefly knit and the woven fabric. I also enjoy surface textiles - embroidery and print.
The journey and the exploration are my motivations and one simple drawing may lead in several directions - there is no ending only a series of conclusions!
My major influence in any art work is colour and the interaction of colours. I am inspired by the Fauvists and the German Expressionists as I am a keen believer in the emotions that lie between the image of reality and the artist’s expression of that reality.
