My work is mainly inspired by the beautiful landscape of the Arnside and Silverdale area. I find the gnarled trees that grow on the limestone particularly interesting. I enjoy capturing the light that plays through them in the woods, their knobbly trunks and twisted roots, rendering them through my unique use of textured fabric and Brusho dye. I also create lino prints on textile which are further enhanced using Brusho dye. The effects caused by these vibrant colours migrating through the fabric never cease to amaze me. Recently I have been experimenting with other media but always basing my work on my love of nature.
My pictures can be seen in local galleries, cafes and exhibitions. I have also undertaken private commissions and run textile art workshops for schools, art and craft groups and WI’s. I am a member of the Green Door Artists group and Arnside Art Group.
