Welcome to my passion.

I am a mixed media and textile artist living in Bude, North Cornwall.  I love experimenting; incorporating and combining different techniques to create art; using my sketchbook to work on ideas and taking photographs to record memories that might later inspire a design.

I am passionate about colour, contrast, textures and pattern; using acrylics, inks, pencil, pen, charcoal and anything else that feels right to create my art.  Fabric and free machine embroidery feature largely in my work, using the needle as a pen and the thread as ink, sometimes bleaching, burning and melting, adding and stripping back.

I am inspired by the rugged Cornish coast, the beautiful countryside around us, architecture and the structure of things like flowers or musical instruments.  I find the desire to create is a very difficult desire to resist.

Thank you for visiting my website I hope you’re inspired.
