The inspiration for my work comes from nature. Using the shapes, colours and textures from the ever changing seasons as my starting point, I enjoy experimenting with yarns, materials and embellishments to create three dimensional, sculptural and textured pieces. My work ranges from small items of jewellery to large scale wall hanging, examples of which can be found in my gallery..
I regularly add items to my shop so please come back to see if there is anything you would like to purchase.
A qualified Occupational Therapist, I am also inspired by the therapeutic uses of arts and crafts, appreciating the positive influence they have on physical and mental wellbeing. Having a wide range of experience allows me the opportunity to work with individuals, other artists and community groups on solo and group projects/workshops, including Arts for Health programmes.
My most recent art project was developing collages with patients on an elderly mental health unit, to enhance the environment for patients, staff and visitors. (I will be adding images from this project in the next few days)
