I am the 2016 Gold Award Winner - Textiles & Needlecrafts
I work with textiles, using fabric and stitch to create artworks inspired by the landscape, coast, gardens and holidays. I used recycled and hand coloured fabric in my work to ensure that each piece is unique. Recent pieces have developed into three dimensional sculptures. Often, working on one piece will lead to ideas for another so series develop linking subject matter and process in different compositions. Landscape links past present and future, the sense of space and pleasure in the moment of being there, is something I endeavor to put across in my work.
