I have always enjoyed working with textiles in various forms, and studied Textile Design at College. Since I returned to live in my native West Cornwall, I have had the opportunity to develop my patchwork skills with experienced local professionals. The colours and textures of batik fabrics that I was using for patchwork reminded me of local Cornish landscapes. This inspired me to make collages of places and memories that are important to me. I have also made textile pictures of various houses. My work has evolved and developed to include both machine and hand embroidery and other techniques which add texture to my designs
