Artist/Maker

lanterns-and-chapel-galleryI love to paint and decorate anything that doesn’t move fast enough to get out of range! I am particularly passionate about decorating useful, everyday items like pottery, furniture and textiles. I am inspired by folk art from around the world and across the ages and by people’s drive to decorate their environment and communicate their individual and community identity through the things they wear, use and where they live.

I sell irregularly at art markets and online, mostly around Christmas time and usually post details about those on my facebook page.

I was part of the small team that ran No11 Town Hall Street in Blackburn, a shop selling locally made arts, crafts, gifts and homewares.
