About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist
Location Thixendale, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I am a retired Primary school teacher living on top of the Yorkshire Wolds in the UK. I had to leave teaching because of health problems and have since started a second career as an artist. My main occupation is embroidery, designing and working to commission, persuing my own more contemporary mixed media work and working as a volunteer 'Broderer' at York Minster one day a week. I also dabble in other things such as doll making, stained glass, and botannical art.
