Freelance Textile Artist/ Workshop Facilitator (She/Her)
My work is very varied, I enjoy using an array of materials within my work, not limiting myself and open to all possibilities. My work explores colour and texture through discarded media, such as fabric and paper scraps, often without a planned approach, I prefer to experiment and manipulate the materials and allow the outcome to develop naturally. Alongside my own practice, I also work with a variety of organisations throughout Yorkshire including: Leeds Playhouse, The Hepworth & Artfelt
In a previous life, I was a secondary school teacher of Design & Technology with Textiles specialism. I had taught for over 14 years in state education when in 2018, I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue the idea of becoming a freelance textiles/mixed media artist.
Open to all ideas & opportunities!
