I am an experienced artist working with a variety of textiles and mixed media. I have exhibited my work within galleries and continue to be influenced by historic and contemporary art within these settings. Using my experience of marketing and selling, I find motivating other individuals about textiles exciting and rewarding.
My work is inspired by a narrative of my own memories and journeys through life. As the needle with the thread penetrates the cloth it begins a journey of twisting and turning meandering along its path, inserting and embedding threads into the fabric, exploring life’s turmoil, perseverance and pleasure .‘…self and world…thought and feeling…’
The expression of imagination, fragility, motivation, experience and determination unfold within my work aiming to make the invisible memories-visible.
