Snow on Saturday

Leftover snow starkly outlining the texture of ploughed fields whilst overhead cirrus clouds till the sky in mimicry of those fields.

A Magpie, perched on the highest twig of a leafless blackthorn. An avian exclamation mark, it punctuates the pause between land and sky.

My reading is beginning to have an impact on my writing; the next stage, I hope,should see an effect on my textile artwork.

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

  1. I have been looking at your work on line and love it , please can you tell me where you are based. I am in Norfolk and organising workshops for different groups. I get a feeling you are in the North East which is a long way from us. Your workshops look good – do you have a base that we could travel to if there were enough of us?


    1. Hi Christine
      Thank you for your kind words:)
      Yes I am based in Newcastle upon Tyne. I usually travel to groups rather than vice versa. Perhaps if there was the possibility of running several events together we could organise something- although it might have to be during school holidays so I can accommodate family matters!
      Best wishes
