The Artist


Trained as painter and teacher at the Bath Academy of Art she has concentrated since 1975 on designing and making tapestries for specific sites and on using wool and its transformation into hand-spun yarn which can bring warmth, texture and colour into a space. Many of her designs have come from landscape and her relief tapestries from visits to the marble and limestone quarries in Italy and France.  Travelling extensively in India has extended her range of colour, understanding of textile and use of symbolism. 

Her work can be found in many collections in the UK and abroad and has been shown extensively in selected mixed exhibitions.  She is a member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen.
