I’ve always been a maker and I loved creating things from a very young age.  Doing a Textile degree in the 1970s at Liverpool School of Art was a natural progression and I specialised in woven tapestry. I moved to the Barbican workshops in Penzance after finishing my degree. It was marvellous to be in Cornwall and to become immersed in the art environment in St Ives and Penzance.  I soon moved from weaving to embroidery and painting, both easier to achieve living in a VW camper and then having a growing family! I am also a member of The Makers Emporium, a cooperative gallery in St Just in West Penwith.  We have quite a few textile artists in the gallery.
