I came to art later in life as I didn’t have the opportunities when I was young.
As my grandmother had been a keen hand-embroiderer and designer I have always enjoyed embroidery. A chance comment by a friend led me to do a short course in felting where I met the textile art tutor from Lichfield Art College. One thing led to another and after completing a textile art course at Lichfield I went on to an Art & Design course at Sutton Coldfield Art College.
I’ve been an exhibiting member of the Midlands Textile Forum for some years and was lucky enough to exhibit my work at a number of exhibitions including the NEC, Sewing for Pleasure Show.
I joined ERTF in 2020, and look forward to working and exhibiting with this group in the future.
