I have always enjoyed painting and drawing and this led me to study for a B.Ed. in Art and Education at Goldsmith’s, specialising in silkscreen printing. Once working, lack of time and spare money to set up a print studio necessitated a change of direction and I became interested in textiles. Over a number of years I developed techniques and ideas through various classes and workshops, including studying for a level 2 City and Guilds certificate in Silk Painting.
In summer 2004 I stopped teaching and this gave me more time to experiment with using printing and painting techniques on silk to make wearable art in the form of scarves. I also explored various stitch techniques to create a range of textile bowls, pictures and cards.
