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 seventies I am devoting organised time and effort to building my art practice. I welcome commissions. firstname.lastname@example.org
Very soon after the sisters show I took part in an AVA group exhibition in the Saltaire festival. There was very little time so I developed a 'two for the work of one idea'. I stretched very fine organdie over paper coated in wipe-clean emulsion. I then painted with watercolour; the paint goes through the fabric and slides all over the coated paper in an unexpected and lovely way. I then embroider into the fabric for one picture and maybe just overlay the paper with transparent fabric for the other picture. I was quite pleased with the result but its interesting that the only picture I sold was one where I had put the fabric back onto the paper; so maybe not. The last picture is a watercolour of the picture that I sold.
