I have always loved working with textiles. From knitting and sewing as a child and while growing up, to spinning, weaving and dyeing, once I had more time after changing careers.
I have been feltmaking for over 20 years, mainly making nuno felt garments, hats and accessories. I love learning new techniques so I often attend workshops with UK and overseas visiting tutors as well as traveling overseas for masterclasses.
I exhibit and sell my work through Surrey Artists Open Studios and some selected venues/events throughout the UK.
I am currently the Editorial Coordinator for the International Feltmakers Association (IFA) for Felt Matters – the IFA quarterly publication. I love the opportunity this has given me to meet and make contact with feltmakers from all over the world.
I was shortlisted for the Surrey Artists Open Studios Artists of the Year for 2018. My work was exhibited at the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham.
