I was a member of Red Herring studios from1994 and joined Phoenix Brighton in 2008. During this time l have enjoyed working free-lance in a variety of media as a designer and maker, including: costume and set design, textiles, Youth/ community projects, residencies, teaching, and corporate events.  

l  teach Art part time and produce my own work in my studio at Phoenix Brighton www.phoenixbrighton.org 

 Using mainly vintage fabrics or linen l make limited edition silkscreen prints on textiles and paper.

I have recently returned to painting….Still Life in acrylics - see Return to Painting page


My 'Domestic Textiles' work references the utility era, the obviousness of a useful household item. It plays with the convention by which we identify an image with the thing it represents and encourages practical application but with enjoyment.

Functional domestic pieces such as tea cosies, peg bags, and table cloths have prints that are simple graphic representations of objects that relate to the function of each piece of work ie, tea cups, teapots, and kitchen utensils.

l am interested in the history, and respond to the ‘story’ of textiles used around domestic rituals such as ‘wash day’ and ‘taking tea’.

The print images aim to encourage the viewer to think about the relationship between form, function and design in objects they use every day or have a familiar relationship with.        

l also make framed textile collage work that incorporates vintage fabric,buttons or beads and are usually abstract or floral designs.
