My abstract style is partially a result of my learning disabilities. I find it harder to reproduce similar marks to other people. My hand writing is unusual looking, only a friend has similar hand writing from similar disabilities. The abstract style lends itself to exploring a variety of themes.Textile art is the first set of media with which I had the confidence to produce Art. I started with hand embroidery but it was too slow to produce professional work. It took at least 12 months to produce an A4 piece of work. This year I'm exploring reverse appliqué (or cuttwork) and will be sometimes combining it with digital prints.
I also draw in oil pastels. I enjoy drawing and I like the vivid colours of oil pastels.
