I have been working as a tapestry/textile artist for 30years, dividing my time between working to commission, teaching and developing my own work for exhibition.
I have exhibited widely throughout the UK, Europe, USA, Russia, Korea and Japan. I take a keen interest in the promotion of Scottish tapestry and am involved in many educational projects to promote tapestry to a wider audience.
Inspired by personal experience and the written word, my work explores the contrasting characters and moods of the sea in stitched paper and tapestry. Ideas are developed through drawing and painting, but only truly come alive when they are translated into my chosen media: Paper, Stitched and Textile.
