Questions I am often asked.
Where are you from?
I currently live in beautiful Pembrokeshire in South West Wales with my artist husband Rob and our two dogs, Bella & Sadie. We are quite new to the area having spent time travelling around the country.
I was born in West Scotland, grew up on the Wirral Peninsula and lived in Yorkshire, Essex, Lincolnshire and the Isle of Wight
Have you always been an artist?
Although I have a varied employment journey, an accounts clerk, a special needs behavoioural assistant and a science technician, I have always created, mainly paintings.
My paintings and textile art in particular is predominantly sold in Canada and USA to collectors.
Are all of these pieces your own work?
Absolutely, every painting, textile landscape, sculpture and mosaic is hand-made by me alone.
What materials do you use?
I'm comfortable with oils, acrylics, watercolour, gouache and pen & ink. I use whichever medium feels right for the piece.
When I'm making the tiled panels I use mirror pieces and ceramics and often include tiles that I make myself from polymer clay. Having recently acquired a small kiln I'm now keen to make some ceramic tiles of my own too.
For textile art I used dyed wools and and a myriad of other textiles to acquire the desired effect.
Do you undertake commissions?
I have undertaken many commissions.
Do you give classes or workshops?
Yes I teach textile art , felt-making.
