I am an artist and tutor living and working in Brighouse, West Yorkshire.
I have always had a love for art and after completing a degree in Visual Arts and Culture I began sharing my love in the classroom teaching Art and Photography.
My personal interest in art extended into textiles when I started attending a variety of workshops alongside teaching A level Textiles at school. I decided to extend my own practice completing level 3 in embroidery. Over the past 7 years I have developed my own work that centers around my love of drawing and a passions for collecting natures treasures when I am out and about.
I create bespoke mixed media pieces of work that focus around my love for drawing, but instead of drawing with a pencil I use a needle and thread.
My inspiration comes the plants,flowers and seed heads I have collected, with the odd animal making an appearance now and again.
Starting with the first step, #My Right Foot. I collect, draw and photograph the treasures that can go unnoticed and these become the inspiration for my work.
Alongside my own work I love to teach and share my love of all things arty. At Shed 76 & 1/2 you can come and work alongside myself, guest tutors and others that share a love of our stitchery world.
