I feel like I have been sewing all my life! My father taught me to sew and my mother taught me the finer points when it came to dressmaking and using the sewing machine. The knowledge carries on with my daughter who also sews and makes quilts.

I have been quilt making for 22 years, and I love creating my own work, and although I started using a lot of applique making quite pictorial quilts, I now like to dye, paint and screen print and make quite abstract pieces. I am inspired by what I see around me, and always have my camera with me which led me to experiment with image transfer as in Pay the Ferryman.

Last year I put together a body of work called "Sticks and Stones" which reflects where I live. We have a flint cottage, in an area known as the Brecks, in
where there are many trees in the forest, in quite a flat landscape. I find it
is good to work to a theme, as you then have a body of work to exhibit whether
alone or with friends. I don't feel I have a "style" but others do, I
play around with what inspires me at the time, and I have so much I want to do,
I am always sewing. Norfolk, UK
