Growing up in the 60's and 70's in London, art was on the school curriculum but I was something of a non-conformer. Fortunately a teacher prompted me to develop my interest in fabrics and I began creating collages out of anything and everything I could find.
It was such a vibrant time in fashion which influenced my use of colour in my art. Over the years I've become a multi media artist in textiles, oils, acrylics, watercolours, gouache, pastels, pen and ink, all of which can be found in my most recent pieces.
“My greatest influences are fashion and nature. The vibrancy of fashion and the beauty of nature never cease to inspire me.”
Art is life
Buying a piece of art is personal. The decision may depend on several variables such as price, medium and where it's going to be hung. Each of my pieces are original and unique. Hopefully they are thought provoking and in time will become family heirlooms. Some of the textile pieces can take weeks to months to make. They are all hand sewn using a variety of materials. They can be as big or small as you want. Either for your castle or your cottage!
