WELCOME

A warm welcome to my website where I hope to share the ups and downs of all the stitchy things I’m doing!

I don’t promise to get it right every time but hope you’ll enjoy seeing what I’m stitching.

Time flies

Really didn’t realise how long it’s been since I updated my website and much has happened since my last post.

The Red Knots aka ‘B95 – the Moonbird’ was successfully exhibited at the Mall Galleries, in London.

Since then I have co-founded an exhibiting stitch textile group, called Visual Marks, which has been successfully running for almost four years now. I have gained a lot of experience from organising and setting up exhibitions to being a treasurer for the group. It has given me the opportunity to create new work and has put me in touch with many talented textile artists. Photos may be seen on the Exhibition page

Time for the Red Knots to fly…

I’ve been somewhat lax in posting here but time seems to have flown by and now it’s time for the Red Knots to fly.

It’s going to be a busy couple of weeks starting tomorrow when I travel up to London to deliver my installation, returning on Tuesday to hang it, then Friday for the Private View, Sunday to steward and the following Saturday to take it all down again! Phew!! Exciting times…

More news…

Well since the excitement of having an article published about my Red Knot installation, on the WHSRN website, I have been told it’s also appeared on their Facebook page  https://www.facebook.com/WHSRN and is linked to ‘The Friends of the Red Knot’ Facebook page too.

More exciting news is that I have been offered both Licentiate Membership of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and the opportunity of exhibiting at the Mall Galleries in London next year.

A bit closer to home; I am currently working towards a site specific exhibition at Manor Farm, so lots to do. Will keep you posted about things as they progress.

Article published in WHSRNews

I was contacted by Meredith Gutowski Morehouse (WHSRN Conservation Specialist) recently about my installation depicting the B95 Red Knot migration and she has written an excellent article for their newsletter which is published on their website. The Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network (WHSRN) is on a mission to conserve shorebirds and their habitats through a network of key sites across the Americas. They are doing fantastic work and I do hope some of you will take a look at their website.

Here is a direct link to the article:

The Show Opens

We had an wonderful opening night for our degree show, with a huge number of friends and family turning up to support us. Everyone enjoyed the diverse range of exhibits and the compliments were overwhelming and I had a lot of interest in my ‘B95 Red Knot Migration’ exhibit. It’s not an easy installation to photograph but hope to get some more done and will put on the website soon.B95 Red Knot Migration
