Many of my quilts are now in private collections in the UK, Australia, and the US. Four of the ‘Life’ series of quilts remain available for exhibition if required. Currently producing new work for exhibition in 2025.
There is quite a debate around textiles and whether they are art or craft, more so quilts, but I’d like to be tipping the edge of both. I enjoy teasing out some knotty concerns using stitch and my work sometimes defies the traditional expectations of quilts; I also embrace the painted figure and enjoy telling people’s stories. So I hope to push the boundaries of the medium, and draw on its long feminine history to reveal ideas relating to gender, work, inequality, female oppression, and prejudice in all forms to all people
