Born in the UK. Lived abroad since 1986. First in Antigua and Barbuda, where I met my American husband, then various parts of the USA; finally landing in Oregon.
Initially working in my Caribbean studio and painting island scenes in gouache.
In the USA my interest in fractal geometry led to using these fascinating images as inspiration for textile artwork. This ranges from tiny bits of embroidered silk; to hand stitched wall hangings. 5 pieces were selected for ‘The Marriage of Art, Science & Philosophy’ at the American Visionary Art Museum, Baltimore, Md.
Now working with beads and other shiny objects to create object d'art and jewelry.
Exhibits nationally and internationally.
Filmed by HGTV for ‘Simply Quilts’, by Adelphia for ‘Artscape’; I am no longer owed my 15 minutes of fame.
I like weaving or embroidering glass beads and other precious items together to make bright shiny things.
Wander through my online shop and find beadwork, textiles, and paintings.
