I have been fortunate enough to make a living from something that I really enjoy doing.
I am a practising Textile 'Artist'.
I exhibit my work at Craft and or Garden Shows. I don't do workshops or any teaching.
I learnt the technique of Batik whilst doing my Art Foundation course - it was something where I could use my interest in drawing and colour in a way that, to me, was more interesting than more traditional painting, always having a surprise element beyond my control.
I have had a stand at Chelsea Flower Show each year since 2007, I also exhibit at Hampton Court Flower Show and the Craft in Focus shows at Wisley.
Since Covid my sales have been through my website, however we do plan to do maybe 3 shows a year, plus of course h.Art.
