I completed a BA (Hons) Degree in Textiles at the UCE in Birmingham in 1994. I moved to Sheffield the same year, set up my home studio and have been making art there ever since. I love nature and have always found it very inspiring. The colours and textures i see when i’m out, and the shapes of flowers, birds & the landscape continue to influence my work. I have always drawn and painted from a young age; Art Textiles being my favourite subject at school, where my love of working with fabric began.
