Oakleigh Studios ;Never Felt Better ; Free Range Felt ;Lost and Found co-operative. Bio

I like to use humour and drama to explore themes of interaction between humanity and the environment. I always work from something I have seen- then embroider it- sometimes quite literally with silk fabric and threads. I use humour but always the underlying values are cherish the Earth and respect life.
Growing up in Birmingham in the 60's was so exciting- attending Bournville School of Arts and Crafts is my core.
Moving to Devon , my 32 years of secondary and further education teaching was focused on Art and Textiles to A level.
Textiles is my first love but I also like to capture drama in nature using watercolour and acrylic.
Working as part of an artist's co-operative has alllowed me to engage with the public and sell my work.
I am currently using acrylic inks and fineliner pens to explore themes of interaction and the balance of nature , which we disrupt at our peril.I am also looking at the personal journey of a developing human being, how overcoming obstacles and identifying a focus for effort builds personality.
Colour, texture, authenticity; sharing a lived experience is what still gets me leaping out of bed in the morning. Every day brings new wonders. Find me on Facebook and Instagram and Lost and Found on Facebook.
