I began to be interested in textile art just after we moved to a Suffolk from London, just over seven years ago. I also am a water colourist and paint with soft pastels so this was a completely new media for me to explore.
I didn’t know one end of a sewing machine from another and so the journey into free motion machine embroidery was a revelation. Once I had mastered the control of the machine I found I could draw with the needle and thread. Hence I explored as many techniques and materials I possibly could.
I attended workshops, read books and experimented with lots of different fabrics, with paints, dyes, using heat to melt and distort materials and my favourite the use of water soluble fabrics!
I have exhibited both here in Suffolk as well as London.
