Denise has always been interested in art and creating. Having gained a BA(Hons) Fine Art Degree De Montfort University she specialised for many years in Screen Printing.
Since moving to a small holding in the Northern Fells of Cumbria over 7 years ago she has continued to work from her studio at Thackmire. Being surrounded by fields and woodland has inspired her to work closely with nature printing directly with plants, flora and fauna and also making natural inks and dyes, fascinated by their properties and what can be achieved.
She produces small editions of fine art prints, Artists Books and also eco prints on fabric.
she also works with wool from her small flock of sheep. She makes a range of natural rugs amongst other things, handwoven on a Brinkley loom and uses natural dyes to dye some of her wool.
Denise has exhibited widely in exhibitions and galleries across the UK. Her work can be found in private collections in UK, Germany, Cyprus and USA.
She is a member of Cumbria Printmakers and also a member of Caldbeck Crafters Co-operative based at Priests Mill, Caldbeck where a selection of her work can be seen and is for sale.
