Batik on silk and cotton
Batik is my primary medium, I work mainly on silk and sometimes on cotton. Our Environment and Cultural diversity are my favourite themes.

Since doing a BEd degree with Art and Design as my special field, many years ago, I have been fascinated with the Art of Batik. Visiting Indonesia fueled the fire and living and working abroad with my Aid worker husband gave endless inspiration and ideas. Now I use my experiences of living in many far flung countries as well as the natural world around me as starting points for my designs. I also particularly enjoy designing bespoke one off scarves for individual customers. My position as Joint Head of Art at King's college School in Cambridge affords me the luxury of balancing my week between Art teaching and creating my own work. My work is also available at Primavera Gallery in Cambridge and the Coach House Gallery in Guernsey. My website is:
