I studied Fashion design at the University of Salford and worked in industry as a designer of Ladies’ and Childrens’ wear for well known high street stores. A career break to have a family enabled me to rediscover my love of art and I began to experiment with different forms of Textile Art.

I use wool & silk fibres in a ‘painterly’ way in order to create textural moody pieces that depict, landscapes, seascapes & floral designs. As well as felt, I work in other textile media, including, Batiks, Silk Paintings, Hand Made Silk Paper pieces & Mixed Media. Two years ago, we opened Pier Lane Gallery in Arnside with our friend and fellow Art Trail exhibitor Trevor Brown.

In addition to creating & selling my own work, I teach classes & workshops in the gallery as well as for The Brewery Arts Centre, Kendal & also teach Art in primary schools throughout Cumbria and Lancashire.
