I have always had an interest in fabrics, threads and paint and have developed a love of art in its widest sense.

Over the years I have dabbled and experimented with many skills and techniques in both paint and textiles. I love the effect paint has on canvas and paper. Likewise I use similar approaches to textiles where I use threads, fabrics and yarns to cover a background like brushstrokes of paint.

I experiment with colour, shape, texture, mixed media and composition to create my pieces of work.

My inspiration comes from visiting various places in Wales, England and beyond. I take photographs or make sketches then interpret these using paint or textiles.

Some of my favourites are:

Seascapes – sand, pebbles, sea, waves

Landscapes – mountains, hills, fields as well as trees, flowers and dry stone walls.
