One of my freelance roles involves working on Arts in Health projects. These three pieces are from one project I’m involved in. These three applique panels show the philosophy of  hospice care. Patients and staff were involved in choosing the colours for the words. They chose words with resonance to themselves and selected a colour for it.

It was quite a task to get them hung! Measuring the gaps, keeping them level AND getting to grips with concealed hanging devices! But we managed it in the end.

The pieces bring a fabulous splash of colour to a busy part of the unit and will be seen by staff, patients and visitors as they move through the building.

Its lovely the way the colours link through to the tall piece further along the corridor created by other artists on the project too.

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
