Life moves on…

So, that was June! A bit hectic but lots of fun. Proggy rug project started successfully


Heartfelt heart workshops delivered Hearts for the Celebration event in Gateshead, and a lovely group learned the secret of turning fish tins into works of art –

And on top of that – all four Sundays in June the front room was my gallery as part of the Network Artists Art Tour 2014. I had over 100 visitors- not all at once!!

Since then I’ve been busy returning my attic studio to some sort of order, so I can get to work on new pieces – lots of ideas bubbling – and whilst the sun is shining I need to get out and fill those sketch books.

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
