A contemporary textile artist with a background in fashion and a passion for photography, my art merges illustration and collage as I draw with stitch. The needle is my pen and the thread is my line. My work is created in response to landscapes, nature and fashion. I notice line, pattern, colour and texture. I use discarded publications and reinvigorate them to give them a new lease of life, repurposing something unwanted into a thing of beauty. I have a Ba (Hons) in Fashion and a PGCE in Secondary Education.
