I have spent the majority of my working life teaching for the University of The Arts, London and took early retirement in 2009.
Since then I have enjoyed exploring various forms of printmaking , settling on linocuts and woodcuts as my method of choice. My inspiration tends to be from objects, places or people that have an emotional effect on me. For instance, lately I have been documenting favourite vintage or flea market finds inspired by them. Prints are on sale at various selected galleries.
Artists books are also of interest to me and I find creating and making them to be a challenge but fun eventually!
Textiles have been part of my life for a long time - and I dye and paint or screen-print my original designs onto 100% silk to create fabulous floaty scarves, which I sell locally and nationally.
I have published four books to date:-
'1000 Patterns', published by A & C Black 2003
'Patterns, New Surface Design', published by Laurence King 2006
'Textiles Now',published by Laurence King 2007
'The Pattern Sourcebook', published by Laurence King 2009
All available at good book shops or via Amazon
