8. Tell me a bit about you...

I'm a Scottish artist living and working in a tiny village in Norfolk UK, with four and a half cats and a very understanding husband! I make art of all descriptions, from altered books to oil paintings, from textile art to encaustic (wax) painting. I have had textile work shown in the UK and abroad, most recently in Lyon, France, as part of the annual Magic Patch Expo, where I demonstrated the use of lutradur and gave workshops in French. I am also part of a curated show that is touring the US until next Summer. I have a joint show with another textile artist planned for next year in Norfolk, and hope to return to Expo Magic Patch also. I work in a studio in my garden, 'The Little Green Shed', which is 20ft by 10ft in size, and hope to begin giving small workshops and individual tuition there in Spring next year. I am currently working on a book with Dijanne Cevaal, a well known Australian quilter; we hope it will be published in the New Year. The book is about lutradur, a wonderful, semi-transparent polyester fabric that is great for textile artists. I hope to follow that up with a book on creativity, some time next year.
