Ideal for beginners in textile weaving /art
I originally trained in Fashion Design, but in 1992 I decided to study Textile Design and specialise in Embroidery at Nottingham & Trent University. Working with thread is a necessity for me, time spent handling and working with materials gives me a deeper understanding and a more personal connection. The slow transformation and construction of new visual narratives is gained by exploring traditional techniques, such as hand embroidery, knit and weave. Freelancing and travel combined with socially engaged art projects are an integral part of my practice. Identity, responses to emotional situations, change and influences all provide questions and define moments in time.
