Ideas Spring from everywhere!

walking in the sunshine, taking a break from tidying up and doing admin’ tasks after workshops and trade events. It was lovely to see signs of spring – these crocuses look like they’re trying to gobble up the sunshine!

I saw new works by Angie Lewin a couple of weeks ago, at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park,  some tiny water colours and prints framed and window mounted so they looked like little jewels. These little buds deserve that treatment I think.  Perhaps a series of little buds of different types in stitch and applique – I’ll keep you posted!

I am a professional textile artist specializing in Appliqué and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes
