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 time 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  Tate Britain  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, including West Dean college near Chichester. I 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 TEXTILE WORKSHOPS  in East Sussex (find upcoming dates here on the Events page,)

I am a member of the Heritage Crafts Association, and The Sussex Arts Collective

My project 'Creativity in Schools' has run successfully in primary and secondary schools for the past 10 years, and continues to be successful.  I worked with 'Creative Partnerships', and was sponsored by Kent County Council,  Brighton and Hove City Council and Veolia   to run my project 'Creativity in Schools, in and around Brighton.   My work has been  featured in the Sunday Times and Sunday Telegraph, and in several arts and craft how-to books.
