Silk painting &  Illustration

Having studied Glass and Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art and Design to successfully gain a Bachelor of Arts Degree with Honours, I ran my own business specialising in glass engraving and photography for a number of years until I had my children. Since then my love of creativity has grown and I have spent many hours happily experimenting with lots of different forms of art and design. I have become increasingly interested in the art of Silk Painting. The more time I spend working with this exciting medium the more fascinating it becomes as the vibrant colours and textures come to life.

Since 2015 I have illustrated 3 children’s books, “BIZZY the BLENNY and the Treasures of the Fleet Lagoon” using silk painting; a Colour & Learn book to accompany Bizzy and “The Magic Makers” (A Creation Myth Poetry Book) using coloured pencils and “Brusho”. Wanda the Oyster catcher is now on the drawing board! My work can also be seen by appointment at my home studio in Bothenhampton Bridport Dorset.
