Textile Artist and Tutor  


Welcome to my Web Site:

 As a contemporary textile artist and tutor/mentor, I teach regular workshops at Cottenham Village College nr. Cambridge (www.community.cvcweb.net), together with Saturday Day Schools, Short Courses and Summer Schools.  Other regular teaching is based at Art Van Go, Knebworth, Stevenage, Herts.  My teaching also takes me all over the country and I am fortunate in having taught at the V&A in London, Jersey, France, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.

Important to me but a continuous challenge is finding the time to exhibit.  However I manage to juggle my commitments to exhibit on a regular basis with Fibrefusion and occasionally, jointly with other textile artist and friends.

Writing is something I also enjoy - this includes my collaboration with writing the Fibrefusion books and writing articles for Magazines.  Fibrefusion have successfully published five Stitched Textile Workbooks which sell very successfully worldwide.  Fibrefusion exhibits countrywide.

A big commitment, was the founding and organisation of a three day textile fair at Cottenham Village College called Textiles in Focus.  After 12 years I passed Textiles in Focus over to be run commercially but sadly, it has now been closed down.

Stitched textile art is my absorbing passion.  Sharing my art is my love and commitment.
