I continue to explore the interaction between humans and the natural environment although Covid-19 has altered my perspective. I am currently experimenting with cross-over pieces - stitching into print and collaging prints in my textile work. I teach at City Arts and by arrangement with groups. In normal circumstances classes and exhibitions are posted on my website.

Using primarily sculpture I explore the meanings found within found or collected materials which have connections to humans or the spaces they inhabit. I have exhibited widely in the UK including the RWA and Discerning Eye, and had a quilt made from dryer lint shown MAD in New York. I am member of the Basingstoke Independent Artists' Network and a qualified teacher providing workshops and tutoring. As an executive member of The Hampshire Sculpture Trust, I organise exhibitions and events.
