Recycling second-hand silk ties, I start with a drawing, deconstruct the design, then transfer the individual components to physically delicate, visually vibrant pieces of silk, which I machine stitch appliqué to (repurposed) fabric.
Holmfirth based, with an arts degree, MA in English & MSc Marketing, I taught in HE and was Marketing Manager for a search consultancy. I now concentrate full time on art. Recent exhibitions include ‘Saltaire Inspired 2019'; ‘Green City’ at Kommune, Sheffield, and ‘Subterraneous’, North Pennines AONB Partnership, Bowlees Visitor Centre, Barnard Castle. I was a shortlisted artist for Glyndebourne’s ‘Tour Art 2019’ competition.
