I retired in 2010, bought a sewing machine in 2011 and began making quilts in 2012.
I particularly like making pictorial wall hangings in a naive style, usually of the South West Cosst and featuring our dog Murphy. In 2015 I entered my first quilt show and my quilt won three prizes! More awards followed and as a result I had a touring gallery with Grosvenor Shows in 2018. Recently I have had a solo exhibition at Cowslip Workshops in Cornwall.
I give talks and run workshops, usually within reasonable travelling distance of Budleigh Salterton, where I live.
