Like many others I have had a life long interest in textiles. This now takes the form of quilts, hangings and 3D pieces of work. I have also had a life long passion for being in the mountains. In recent years this has informed my textile work. In particular the landscape, my travels, the wildlife, the weather particularly snow and ice but also the culture of the area which is inspired by the poetry and prose related to it.
I have recently completed the C&Q Diploma in patchwork and quilting with the inspiring tutor Barbara Weeks; as a result of this I have been delighted to be selected from a national process to take part in this years "In the Spotlight" at the Festival of Quilts. This years theme is to celebrate Lewis Carol's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" and is "Adventures in Wonderland". My work is entitled "Adventures in Snow and Ice"
