I have been Drawing and Painting for as long as I can remember. After almost 20 years in a Nursing career I fulfilled a dream and went to Art school. Hornsey College of Art and Design London, an exciting place to me at that time provided my foundation year, then West Surrey College Farnham and Degree Course in Textile Design with painting drawing and printmaking as support studies. Although I mainly paint, my textile background is always hovering. I am always experimenting with new Ideas with collage and other mixed media. Enjoying different media to interpret things around me, including bits of old fabrics and using my great grandmother's hand sewing machine and its limitations, has given me great pleasure. Recently had a generous loan of a printing press which offers more exciting possibilities.
