Working in mixed media textiles enables me to indulge my passions which are colour and texture. Using paint, print and collage for my pieces, coupled with hand and machine embroidery, I create highly textured works inspired by nature - landscape, trees and flowers, shells, minerals. I like to work with recycled and found materials and often create backgrounds using newspaper, brown paper and tissue paper.

I have been exhibiting for two years and have had work in local exhibitions and galleries both as an individual and as a member of 'Culgaith Artists' In 2015 I started running workshops which offer the opportunity to try out a range of experimental textile techniques.
