Run up to the Knit & Stitch shows – Autumn 2019

I will be undertaking a deep exploration of memories through our toys for the Knitting & Stitching Shows this year, producing an atmospheric ‘Memory Room’ where the viewer will be immersed in toys of the past and memories of childhood.

I will be using images in different mediums – textiles, prints and 3D forms.
As ever, shadows will be a prominent feature.

Talks and Workshops

I have been running many Talks & Workshops this year, with a wonderful response in Ashbourne and Grantham most recently. It’s always great to meet people who love their textiles.

I am looking forward to running another workshop soon in Grantham and giving another talk in Hull next month.


The Other Art Fair 2018

THE OTHER ART FAIR Victoria House, Southampton Row, LONDON, W1.    
I’m delighted for you to know that I’m exhibiting at The Other Art Fair in October 2018.
It’s the 30th edition of TOAF and the 3rd time I’ve taken part.
I’m looking forward to showing a range of new work that has never been seen at the Fair.
The Private View is Thursday 4th October and the Fair will be open Fri 5th – Sun 7th.
