"Colours are my strongest inspiration. 

I explore colour through texture, shape and contrast.

The colours guide all of my work and I have worked in many mediums. 

This includes fashion knitwear,  soft toys and paint, mixed media, stitch and textiles. 

I am the 5th Generation of my family to work with textiles.

I have exhibited my work,  created commissioned pieces and facilitated the creativity of people with profound disabilities- through workshops and one to one support. 

I studied first at Galashiels College of Textiles,  and then Art Therapy at Queen  Margaret University."
