'A few months ago I was fortunate enough to be able to leave my business career behind and return to art.
Art school had given me a great understanding of being creatively minded in a way that allowed investigation and play into a multitude of disciplines. 7 years of discovery, challenging my perception and talent to the maximum, culminating in a masters degree from the Royal College of Art.
But it is now, a new technique emerges...
While working with wools, cottons and linens, I found the colours so evocative and delicious. So many skeins and cones of beautiful variegated yarns and the textured lines of the fabric just called to my fascination with line and perspective. With a great deal of experimenting, the beginnings of land and seascapes started to emerge.
Now with an eye to the layering, this technique has brought about some fascinating ‘painting with textiles’ that seem to bewitch and hypnotize the viewer and myself’
