I trained at the London College of Furniture and did a BTEC at Ipswich College of Art. I now specialise in hand dyeing and printing, batik and devore. I like using natural dyes when possible and I offer courses in natural dyeing. Saffron and indigo are particularly good dyes to use and I love to experiment with colour. Some of my work is based on sketches I make when I go to Spain but I also use images of the countryside and wildlife around my home. Sometimes I incorporate photographs.
