I'm a Textile Artist and Teller of Tales.
Interests: Ever since I was a little girl, I have loved playing with fabric, thread and shiny things., I'm always looking out for the weird and wonderful things in my world, the stories they hold fascinate me and I try to weave them around the things I make., I love my work, teaching and giving talks on Textile Art, Old Myths and Legends and ancient churches., Much of my thinking is done while I walk my dog, Rowan. She's a two year old Flat Coated Retriever., I read. . . . a lot! My taste covers so many things from Arthur Mee's 'Kings England' series to Tracy Chevalier 'Remarkable Creatures', from H.V. Morton's 'In search of England' to Kilvert's Diary. Just depends on the mood I'm in. . ., My music choice is much the same, very varied, Nora Jones, folk, old Motown numbers., But best of all I love, spending time with my family and friends, sharing a meal or a cuddle!
