I have lived in Leeds for around 17 years, having grown up in the South. I trained in Textile Design at Huddersfield Polytechnic. I currently earn a living facilitating art projects work with a variety of community groups and schools, specialising in drawing and painting, textiles and diverse craft techniques.
Whilst my children were young I found it hard to concentrate on producing my own work, but as they are growing up I have become more determined to find the time and have made some work space in the garage.
My own work is generally inspired by the natural world. More recently I have been basing my work around the Leeds to Liverpool canal – a mixture of natural and manmade. I explore colour and texture and pattern, currently mostly through drawing and painting. My work is produced through sketching, photography and experimentation, working up to a finished piece.
