Caring for our planet is a core part of my being.
MY RURAL SURROUNDINGS AND FIVE BEAUTIFUL ALPACAS HAVE REKINDLED MY CREATIVE AND EXPERIMENTAL NATURE.
I originally trained as an artist and it is this background and an appreciation for shape and form that remains as a key aspect throughout my work today.
I have a deep rooted passion for caring for our planet. It’s a core part of my being and as a result I try to live my life with great depth and thought for the actions I take, both in my work and outside of it.
I have lived at the Water Tower in rural Northamptonshire for nearly three decades, and more latterly acquired the alpacas who rekindled my inquisitive and experimental passion for creating. Lockdown obviously forced stay-at-home activities, but it also gave me full permission, and indeed the need, to devote time to working in my studio without distraction. It was at this point I further developed my depth of understanding in my weaving and felting skills.
My designs are refined and, what might appear at first glance, simple but they come from a deep, personal process of observing, questioning and engaging in the natural world.
