My artwork is mainly inspired by walks in nature and travel. I make sketches and doodles of the places I visit such as the Temples of Angkor in Cambodia, the streets of Barcelona or more recently the Shropshire hills. Sometimes I am inspired by the overall landscape and sense of place but sometimes I like the smaller details – a shell on the beach, an intricately carved doorway or an interesting texture. I develop my sketchbook work into larger scale pieces using a variety of media and processes including free machine embroidery, printing, collage, batik, drawing and painting.
