I work in both glass & textiles & love what I do! My inspiration & designs are gathered from where I live – near the sea in Sussex – the places I visits & the people I meet. My artwork and love of creating now feeds into the day jobs working with adult learners, students at the University of Chichester and Chichester College. I teach marketing, events and business, but there is always a little creativity thrown in.
I am writing a paper for an MA, researching how art and the crafting process can enhance learning, relieve anxiety and stress and increase self confidence in learners.
The weekend and evenings will find me with enthusiastic learners, finding out about and making beautiful things from glass. My children, dogs and husband are also immersed in the creative worlds, coming to events, festivals and workshops.
In other news, I am a big fan of rugby and I have an unhealthy passion for buttons and fabric. I can bake a good cake and am a bit of a computer geek.
