The Art Tour

Day 2 of the Art Tour!

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
