Life is complicated and untidy. I make ceramic items, influenced by important events that unfold around me.
I have recently moved house and become a mum, I use objects relating to these particular times in my life to reflect various feelings and emotions.
I currently participate in numerous art and craft activities and deliver workshops to all members of the community.
I work in education, the voluntary sector & the community doing residencies & workshops passing on my passion for arts to all ages & abilities.
I specialise with groups sharing textile crafts which plays a huge part in communication & learning.
As a young child my mother taught me to knit & stitch, while creating a life-long passion for textiles.
Just as my grandmother taught my mother & aunts, I passed on those skills to my eldest daughter
I gained a First and overall best student award for my BA Hons Textiles/Crafts degree at Huddersfield University last year specialising in Embroidery.
I now work with my mother on various community projects such as the Youth Service & Refugee Womens Group, while making work for sale.
I am exhibiting with Angie and Susan now, after showing at The Quilt Show at the NEC last summer.
We are all members of The Fringe, Doncaster Visual Artists Network & have been inspired by nursery rhymes & our childhood memories to collaborate together.
We have shared stands at Craft Markets & Art Fairs all over Yorkshire in the past year & are already booked for the next few months.
Hope to see you there,
