My background is embroidery having completed my City and Guilds Certificate and Diploma in 2014 with my interest in quilting developing when I joined Northern Threads in 2016.
My passions are colour and texture. Working in mixed media textiles enables me to create highly textured works using paint, print and collage coupled with hand and machine embroidery. I have been exhibiting for a number of years and have had work in local exhibitions, galleries and the Scottish Quilting Show and in 2019 received a Silver Award in the Contemporary Quilt category.
In October 2017 I was awarded the first Friends of Higham Scholarship which culminated in a solo exhibition 'Connections' linking Geology and Art.
