|Who Am I?|
I am a textile artist living and working in the beautiful county of North Yorkshire. I have been making textiles using traditional ragwork techniques for nearly 20 years now. I have also long been a collector of antique rag rugs andregularly write and give talks about the history of rag rug making in Britain and North America.
In 2010 I graduated from the University of Cumbria with an MA (Distinction) in Contemporary Applied Arts and over the two years of the course my artistic practice evolved considerably. I still use recycled textiles and ragwork techniques but now I combine them with more unusual materials and techniques to create purely conceptual work.
