"For me learning is a life-long process. Every day I experience something that enriches my creative work. I love happy accidents, that lead somewhere I did not intend to go. To help me develop as an artist, I regularly attend arts master classes at:
Beetlefelt Studios in Manchester I worked with two professional dyers to harvest plants and use them to dye samples of fibre and fabric.
Hot Bed Press Studios in Salford - I have explored techniques such as collagraphs, risoograph and monoprints.
The Hat Museum in Stockport - I studied wet felting, including nunofelting, inlay, mosaic and 3-D vessels.
I look forward to other courses, publications and projects that may happen in the future. I am so blessed to have opportunities to study and develop as an artist."
