About The Artist

I am a Sussex-based stitch artist with a farm-based studio on the Sussex and Surrey border.

Mark making with thread has been fundamental to my art since my teenage years. Both free machine and hand embroidery are central to my work. Colour, and the lack of it, play vital roles. My machine embroidery is often monochromatic; I am very drawn to the black line of cotton thread on plain canvas although at times, if the subject matter calls for it, I will introduce colour. On the other hand, my hand embroidery explodes with colour and texture.

I am inspired by the wider environment and of that around me; from the back garden, local surroundings, photographs and images from around the world. A City and Guilds embroidery course led to Reigate School of Art and Fine Art courses, still using my embroidery skills.

Art Groups / Exhibitions

I was invited to join the ShedArt artist cooperative and have been a member ever since, exhibiting in many venues throughout Surrey and Sussex. Being amongst many painters, I have been enticed by the medium and found it to be a pleasant alternative.

I am also a member of an East Grinstead-based art group, Example, which has undertaken two Arts Council funded exhibitions within the local community.
