I would describe my work as “textile art” as I use materials such as fabrics, paints and yarns. Having designed and cut out the stencils myself, I then paint, using oil paints, on only the highest quality fabric. Details and contours are then highlighted by hand with thousands of stitches.

My work often involves great detail and reflects my own distinctive and unique style. My inspiration is drawn from nature: beautiful scenery … the different seasons … shells on the beach … deer … a garden or a field of bright red poppies … a floral still life and a crystal vase … a park with doves. Often romantic, always decorative.

The artworks vary in size from very small 10x10cm to large 250x200cm. A prominently positioned work of art can thus give endless enjoyment.

Whilst I follow my own inspiration, I do also work to order.
