Following a  teaching career in Art and Design,specialising in Textiles initially  to adults and later to children with profound and multiple learning difficulties I have recently changed direction to develop  work with textiles. At the present time,my work is evolving   using dye,print and stitch. This now forms the base point and relates to both the ever changing coastline and my current travels in Japan and China interpreted through indigo dyeing and rust printing to release images for stitch.         In 2017, as Artist in Reidence, with Guy Eades at the Botanical Gardens in Ventnor I had the unique and privileged opportunity to develop natural dyeing. Using selected varieties  of eucalyptus, of which there are 37 in the Gardens I embarked on an experimental programme with eco printing.   This year contributing to the 'Threads' project in Ryde I am currently working as Artist in Residence using the town as a starting point in a joint community project again in dye,print and stitch        Further insights  into Indigo  this year together with cyanotype experiments will be on show at the Open Studio
