Last year was my first with the Arts Trail, as well as being my first exhibition since a Typography degree show 20 years ago. Having not embarrassed myself entirely, I’ll be back again this year with much more of the same – lots of big, bright flowers on framed and canvas prints, postcards, greetings cards, cushions and brooches. Plus more digital images of Bristol – graphic prints of balloons, graffiti details and abstract harbour reflections.
I noticed my passion for painting during GCSE Fine art and 3D Sculpture. I did not want to dismiss this interest so kept painting as a hobbie until now where I am considering to make something of it! I paint portraits, animal portraits and still life, although I prefer to paint landscapes. I use acrylic paints to create the picture on varying size canvases.
Textile artist mixing both contemporary and traditional techniques. All items are handmade to the highest quality and are unique, one off originals. Range of work includes cards, bags, purses, wallets and various accessories.

Screenprints and collages inspired by my love of Bristol buildings.
Colourful terraces, sweeping views, miles of bunting and the occasional spirograph.
Come and say hello!
I'm showing a huge (hopefully) selection of lino prints, handprinted cards, teatowels, canvas bags, badges and anything else I can think of in time!! Prices start from £1 so that can't be bad...
Simplicity and fluidity are key features of my work. My designs combine clean lines and basic geometric forms with colour and texture to achieve a visually harmonious balance. The beauty of each piece lies in its simple elegance and high quality finish. My aim is to create stylish, eye-catching yet wearable pieces of jewellery.
I have been taking photography seriously for the last 2 years and had a number of exhibitions of my work around Bristol.
I am also a founder member of the local Photographic Association “Second Look”.
I like to challenge the perceptions we have of beauty.
There are things that are not considered of aesthetic value and usually ignored.
I am fascinated by the minute detail of such rusty, neglected or weathered items, as when seen up close and out of context, they can reveal such beautiful imagery.
All these images are taken using my mobile phone.
