I live in Wales and draw inspiration for my work in various mediums from the natural elements found in the countryside. My art is primarily a visceral and an emotional reaction to colour and form in the natural world, and my subject matter arises from the microcosm to the macrocosm; patterns and flowing landscapes in biological and geological realms. I also have a passion for interior design and have translated many of my works into mural form and textile furnishings. I\'ve made art and textiles since I was a child, back in the days when they taught knitting and weaving in school. My first love was knitting and wool-craft and painting, later came photography and book arts. Since doing my degree in Fine Art at Howard Gardens in Cardiff, I\'ve attended various workshops in felt-making, book-binding, paper-making and artist book-making; and more recently, a course in textiles for professional development in Bristol.
