I am a Cheshire based artist who specialises in mixed media, textile based pieces. I take my inspiration from a variety of sources and I am particularly interested in the way in which ancient societies created a series of visual symbols to represent the things which were important to them. I investigate myth and legend and draw parallels between societies, showing that although many people have different beliefs we are all united by visual iconography.
I have exhibited widely both in group and solo shows both here and abroad and have had articles published in magazines and on the internet. I also feature in Kim Thittichai's book, 'Experimental Textiles'. My work has won prizes at The Ferens Open, The Potteries Open and the Grosvenor Open Exhibitions.
I have recieved positive feedback from the galleries where I have exhibited as I try to make my work accessible to all age range and to people from different backgrounds. Viewers, especially younger people, respond to the visual richness of the objects whilst others make connections with their own religious beliefs and feelings.
My work offers plenty of scope for educational events and I am able to offer Gallery talks, demonstrations and workshops.
I am a member of the Cheshire Artists Network and have exhibited in several group exhibitions with the group.
