An accountant by profession, now retired, I was introduced to textiles in 2012 when I was encouraged to enter a piece in to the, now sadly defunct, Loch Lomond Quilt Show.

I went on to earn first prize in this show in 2013 and had further success in winning the Contemporary class in the 2016 Scottish Quilting Show in Glasgow.  To extend my horizons, I have undertaken various courses including tapestry weaving, embroidery and other textile related activities.

I am drawn to colour and design taking inspiration from many sources, including tapestry weavings, modern rug designs and modern art, and aim to let the design and colours of my pieces speak for themselves, using stitch only in a functional way.
