I came to textiles quite late, after being a secretary for 17 years.  Between 1995-1998 I studied Textile Design (specialising in weaving) and Creative Studies in English at Bath Spa University College gaining a BA (Hons) in Creative Arts.  Over the years I have found that I also enjoy dyeing fabrics, felt making and hand stitching as well as teaching others to discover their own creativity through exploring a range of techniques and materials.

I am enjoying being part of St. Ives Textiles as it is a great opportunity to focus on my own art work, exploring ideas and progressing my work through sketchbooks
