I have always been a keen artist, and practised art in my spare time between career and family - creating has been a way of life feeding my soul in a busy schedule. I completed 2 years at college doing Fine Art in Staffordshire giving me a great foundation to apply to my art and creativity.
I took superannuation from the NHS which a
allowed me precious time to develop my art.
I feel my happiest with collage, mixed media and abstract pieces; colour, harmony, shapes and line are where I am drawn. I like to sketch, particularly with concertina sketchbooks, which gives me freedom and inspiration for art pieces and compositions. I like to Journal, book bind and slow stitch which allows me to explore textiles, paper and upcyle many items, which is bliss. I love to share skills and creativity outlets so would love you to sign up to my Newsletter where we can have a creative connection.
I have exhibited at 'The Harley Open' Gallery in Nottingham in 2020, Matlock Artists Society over the last 3 years, Bonsall Art Club for the last 2 years and at the Old Lock up Gallery in Cromford for the Secret Postcard Exhibition. More recentoly I have exhibited as part of a stitch collective called 'Untangled Threads' of Scarborough, exhibiting at Harrogate at the Knitting and Stitching Show. I also have a sketchbook in the Brooklyn Art Library in New York.
