Life

profile picture

I have exhibited frequently in London including the V&A. I was introduced to sewing and embroidery as a child which I have continued to build on at various stages throughout my life. After raising 2 children while working as a midwife and then counsellor, I started experimenting with 3D work starting with clay, progressed to casting and then welding steel, and using other metals. Having exhausted the joints in my hands however, and after a fairly lengthy tantrum, I have recently started working with machine embroidery and most recently, hand embroidery. Most of my work has been figurative and a reflection of the concerns of my life at that time: the obvious, obscure, joyful or not. I am observing that in more recent years it is much more focused on the natural world beyond myself.
