My new work 'Instance' came from ideas while painting. It follows the sweeping gestures of paint, applied quickly and with no second thoughts. My textile work is very slow, in contrast: the dyeing of the fabric and the cutting of the pieces all have to be prepared before the work on the frame and hessian. So the delight of quick statements, full of vitality, is what I want to convey in my work. Fleeting glimpses of colour caught.
I have also worked in collaboration with Newcastle based textile artist Ali Rhind on projects and for public art commissions. Our latest work, 'Sustenance', hangs in the Newcastle City Library.
I continue to work for exhibitions and other private commissions. If you are interested in commissioning me please contact me
