FINE ART IN TEXTILES
With a lifetime interest in art and photography
I have studied two foundation courses, one in fine art and the other in
textiles. As a result I
have quite a large collection of books of samples and work, which have been
used in the collages.These have
included handmade paper, handmade felt, printed paper, machine knitting, machine
embroidery and dyed fabrics.
I have also always been a keen patchworker,
having completed a City & Guilds course in Patchwork and Quilting.In 1997 I won the cup for a
Novice Quilt at the National Patchwork Championships and I have also contributed to quilting
eventually evolved into making wall hangings and more abstract textile work.
I have been making collages for the past two
years, switching from textile work to more fine art.These have all been of local scenes near to
where I live in Whitchurch on Thames,Oxfordshire. Some of which are representational whilst others are more
abstract. Digital prints and and postcards are also available. I will also undertake private or
My first collage titled Whitchurch
Lock was exhibited at the Royal Academy London Summer Exhibition 2017.Â Another titleÂ The Ferryboat InnÂ
(Whitchurch on Thames) was
shortlisted for the RWA Bristol Exhibition 2017.
