I am Influenced by nature’s flora and fauna, from its birth in spring to its decay in autumn – so many colours and textures. I also like to recycle and up-cycle wherever possible. I enjoy all Fine Art and Art & Crafts. Hand spinning is fun and makes me think and smile and wonder…what if…
My tutor at university said I was a ‘curious’ artist…
I am a member of the Beretun Spinners, a spinning and weaving group that meets monthly in Barton on Humber and the founding member of the stitch’nbitch group in Westwoodside, that meets weekly in the village pub.
