Working with textiles in the tradition of quality cloth manufacture in the Stroud Valleys, I design and print fine cloth for costume and couture. I design collections of fashion scarves and bags, specialising in devore with silks, velvets and fine linens and I have sold collections internationally through well-known couturiers, shops and galleries.
In recent years I have developed my creative practice, working on ‘textile-led’ projects in collaboration with Studio Seven, a group of seven textile artists. The group has staged pioneering textile led performances and installations exploring unconventional ways of showing textiles; “Textiles in Performance,” “Make Do And Mend” and “Cut 2 On Fold” among their most successful events.
I run workshops for schools and individuals from my well – equipped studio in an arts centre in Stroud.
I am a trustee of the Stroud Water Textile Trust and a longstanding member of the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen.
