The life of a textiles teacher

By profession I am a lecturer in fashion and textiles at a sixth form college, working with vocational and foundation diploma students, but despite loving what I do, felt a bit frustrated by my own lack of making, having previously spent a number of years in industry, designing surface pattern for a wide variety of well known retail outlets .

So the life of a textiles teacher was born and my love of screen printed and constructed textiles is realised through a range of handmade interior and decorative products. My work is mainly inspired by collage and the shape and form of birds.
