Finally, eighteen months after leaving my full time role working in the textile industry I have decided to share my new world.
The creation of this website by the very talented mike@flickingpixels and the framing of my work by the experts Jo and Tim @spectrumframingandgallery, Thirsk have been instrumental in me finally taking the plunge and letting you have a look at what I have been doing.
I have moved three times; totally decorated one house from top to bottom, created new gardens in my current beautiful home in North Yorkshire, travelled as often as I can but mainly I have spent time in my studio exploring and having fun with colour, paint, wax, fabric and this weekend I am going to explore the wonders of glass, a medium that has always fascinated me.
I often have too many ideas to capture and wish that there were many more hours in each day and more days in the week. The freedom of exploring new medium and different techniques is liberating. So many ideas flow, many of them are put aside to revisit later others get shredded and torn and suddenly become far more interesting.
Here are a few images to show you my work space.
