Artist's Statement

I’m an enthusiast for many types of craft but have a particular interest in textile and wax.
Since taking a teachers course in encaustic wax painting nearly 15 years ago , I’ve been teaching the subject at Alston Hall adult education college and elsewhere. I love the colours and the element of surprise which this medium brings.
I’ve enjoyed embroidery for many years -starting with tapestries stitched during boring days when I was ill as a child ! In more recent years I’ve done many short courses on different aspects of embroidery , particularly machine embroidery and  I’m currently secretary to Parbold Branch of the Embroiderer’s Guild. My recent work seeks to combine my love of  encaustic wax with my stitchery to create unusual bags and other work
I'm very excited that membership of ‘One Step On’ enables me to develop and exhibit my work more widely.
