Welcome

Mixed Media & Textile Artist

I am a self-taught artist, whose career as a freelance graphic designer together with a passion and knowledge of anything to do with textiles and fibres, has shaped and influenced the style and identity of my work.
In 2017, I wanted to explore further textile art until I found a new fresh and vibrant look, which I had not done or seen before.
I introduced hand-cut paper skills, which I thought would compliment the fabrics I already had, and create colour, first of all as well as sharp contrasts and depth.
From a distance the overall composition of each work can be appreciated, with the details, textures and structure revealing themselves as you get closer. I will be inspired by landscapes, seascapes, bouquets, my garden, markets, architectures from balconies to front doors and street scenes.
I was born in South-West France and have been living in Derbyshire since I was 18. You will see both my French roots and my adopted country – including my own garden – reflected in my work. After 4 years as a Banks Mill studios tenant, my new creative space is my garden studio in Derby.
