Setting up the show

So this chilly bank holiday I am at the lovely Craft & Design show at the beautiful RHS Hyde Hall Gardens in Essex.  


It’s always lovely to get feedback on my work at these events. The lighthouse piece was very popular today and people also loved ‘Arran Breeze’ with the two hooded crows.

Talking about the locations depicted always reminds me that we live on a small island- 300 miles from home I met people from Whitley Bay and Wallsend, and others who own a hotel on Arran!

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
