Artist Statement

I received my City and Guilds in Creative Textiles (Highly Commended) between 1994 and 1998 and I have continued to stitch ever since.

My influences are varied from landscapes, seascapes to buildings; I now live in Crail in the East Neuk of Fife and particularly like using objects found on the seashore.

Colour is a very important part of my work and I particularly like layering fabrics to achieve depth of colour and texture, I then machine and hand stitch to finish the piece.

I take part in the East Neuk Open Studios every June and November and have exhibited in various galleries from Falkirk to the Borders including a venue at Pittenweem Arts Festival for 3 years.

I am also a member of Group 12 who exhibit all over Scotland.
