"My life is measured in stitches"
Working as a Textile Artist is embedded within me.
I primarily use vintage fabrics and threads,
specifically linen threads. I prefer landscapes
and seascapes and working from nature.
I create with "Stitches to be seen"
Darlington Hippodrome 2018 for their re-opening after renovation.
At the moment I am working on pieces based
around the North East coastline and the areas of
North Yorkshire where I grew up.
I am using vintage linens and fabrics from clothes,
apparel and unwanted garments.
I've returned back to using a technique I used
many years ago, by adding watercolour and
acrylic paint as a base, before the stitches
to be seen are added.
