SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFO ABOUT THE ARTIST ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I am a rag rug maker, felt maker, artist, teacher and author. My work is inspired by the natural world, and the green man, hares, birds and plant life are subjects I return to tme and time again. I work instinctively - my pieces often come to life as I work, rather than planning each detail beforehand.
My work has been exhibited in the V&A Museum in London, and I appeared on channel 4 TV with Kirstie Allsopp with my work on her Homemade Home series 2. I was commissioned by the Tate Gallery in London to create eight Bloomsbury style rugs for an exhibition of Bloomsbury art celebrating the millennium, and also by the Charleston Trust, who commissioned a reproduction of an old Bloomsbury style rag rug, that now lies in Maynard Keynes bedroom at Charleston, home of the literary and art group of the 1920's, and open to the public. I occasionally teach rag rug making workshops at Charleston.
My book Rag Rugs - Old into New was published to coincide with my appearance on channel 4 television on 'Kirstie's Homemade Home and is available to buy at £18 including p&p in the UK
I teach in adult residential colleges in the South East, and deliver my 'Eco Art' sessions in primary schools, - a fun thing I currently do twice a week, and in the school holidays, as 'Lets Make' kids art workshops' I also run my own monthly TEXTILE WORKSHOPS in Mayfield, and Lewes, East Sussex (find upcoming dates on the events page,)
I am a member of the Heritage Crafts Association, and The Sussex Arts Collective.
