Umberleigh, Devon

My inspiration for many of my designs comes from the landscape and skies in Devon but I also enjoy contrasting textures and colours which my medium offers endless possibilities. As a garden designer I use my understanding of shape, colour and texture to guide my designs and some folk have often commented that my designs are like gardens and flowers. Colour has always been very important to me and I love the way colours react to each other and blend.
I am a member of the North Devon Arts and Textile Forum South West. I have recently exhibited at Broomhill, Barnstaple, Okehampton Museum, The Plough, Torrington, and Beaford Arts Centre. I have been part of Art Trek and the North Devon Festival in from 2005 to present.

I will also be working at Clovelly and the Old Post Office, Tintagel [National Trust for the first 2 weeks of May.
