I grew up being influenced by a highly imaginative , one of a kind, talented mother who tried most arts and crafts from lithography and sculpture to textiles and art both oils and acrylics. I developed a love for textiles in my teens but this has developed into my love of dyeing, screen printing and techniques such as batik. More recently I have enjoyed machine embroidery with the addition of hand sewing. My salvation in the last year has been sewing with my various buddies when we’ve been allowed to sew in each others gardens !
