About Me as an Artist
I'm an Artist, a Florist, a Weaver, a Spinner, an Aquarian
and the owner of
two now one gorgeous Birman Cat...
I've been an Artist all my life and this year I've opened an ETSY SHOP which I'm busy stocking with wallhangings and original artworks for sale.
I use a variety of mediums including oil, acrylics, watercolour, pen & ink, gold dust and gold leaf. I love using natural linen canvases and, for my Mandala work, 300g watercolour paper.
With my weaving I use natural textiles and plant fibres. Using a drop spinner, I spin wool, Ramie (Nettle var.), Flax (Linen), Silk, Egyptian Cotton and Alpaca. This summer (2020) I've started buying in raw fleeces which I hand wash, dry, comb and then spin. This is an amazingly satisfying process and I absolutely love knowing where the fleeces come from and the names of the sheep and alpacas that have provided them.
