I am an artist living in Essex UK and have been exhibiting my paintings in galleries for thirty years. I work in oils and also mixed media collage in a variety of subjects. I have been exhibited at The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and the Mall Galleries and my work can been seen in prestigious galleries in the UK. I have also exhibited in Japan. At present only quality reproduction cards are available on Folksy. I love colour and texture and my textile work also reflects this. I create textile pictures using applique and free motion machine and hand embroidery. I also enjoy using different yarns together to create unique items with crochet.
