I am an artist living and working in Bradford, West Yorkshire. I have drawn and painted most of my life and have worked in textiles ever since my children started refusing to wear the appliqué clothes I made them. Now in my sixties I am devoting organised time and effort to building my art practice. I welcome commissions. firstname.lastname@example.org
In October 2012 I took part in the Ilkley arts trail which was started last year to run alongside the well established Ilkley literature festival. I was in a great space with two glass artists, two ceramicists, a jewelller and a hat maker. I didn't sell much but I covered my costs and it was great to meet and have time to talk to other makers.
I showed a number of new pictures .
This is a meadow I saw above Oxenhope, which I have been hand embroidering over a number of months.
The next three are pictures from a visit to my sister in Suffolk when I was riveted by the amazing skies
Bradford Open Studios
At the beginning of June I took part in the first year of Bradford Open Studios, turning my house into a gallery for four days. As it was its first year it was quiet, but it was an enjoyable few days.
