• My work has its roots in childhood, the colour, the mischief, and occasionally the nightmares.
  • I have been fortunate enough to experience the art world from all angles
  • My greatest influence has to be my memories of childhood and the beautiful countryside which surrounds my home.

My Story

Although formally trained, I was born to make ‘stuff’.
My first masterpiece was a pigeon made using river clay, and feathers from road kill, when I was five years old. That sculpture sat in my parents coal shed for years, it was my very first installation.

My interest in manipulating materials and foraging for inspirational found objects still fuels my practice as you will see from my work, resulting in a huge range of styles and techniques.

I started a little group a few years ago when our local library became a Community Library. It’s called Knot, Knit & Natter. It’s every 1st & 3rd Tuesday of the month 10am - 12pm. You don’t have to pay and you don’t have to knit! It’s open to everyone, just bring a project, or just bring yourself! There was a great article recently on @bbcradio4 about loneliness and how it is on the increase, little groups like this one are so helpful in getting people out of their home to spend a couple of hours in warm friendly space where there is no pressure to do anything but ‘be’. Everyone is welcome and our next gathering is on Tuesday at Kinver Community Library. We are a very friendly bunch! 😊#community #dontbelonely #textiles #craft #friendship #bbcradio4
