Textiles and painting 

I moved to Lyme Regis some 12 years ago and was inspired to paint – something I had always wanted to do but never got around to.

In the past few years I have become increasingly drawn to textiles which I find therapeutic as well as enjoyable – the colours and texture of fabric, especially wool.

Inspired by a love of texture and colour my work, often naive in style, combines mixed media, acrylics and collage alongside experimental textile art and weaving.
