My front room has become my gallery and studio workshop every Sunday in June. The bunting is flying in the garden and the yellow tour signs are out, now I just need a tour bus of wealthy textile art lovers to turn up!
A quiet morning has brought a lead for a workshop, so that’s good. I’m using my time in residence today to think about plans for a ‘Free Machine Embroidery’ workshop too, as people at yesterday’s workshop were interested in that as a follow up.
I’m going to get a couple of tin pieces finished today too – pictures to follow!
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
