I began to use batik as a medium around 10 years ago. I studied Fine Art at Wimbledon Art School in the 70’s and went on to study postgraduate art therapy at St. Albans. For years I used mainly paint and clay, both in my own art and when working as an art therapist, then I discovered the joys of wax.
Now, in my studio in rural Lincolnshire, I use batik techniques nearly every day. I enjoy using batik to capture the people and places I love, my beautiful local river, the Cornish coastline and Yorkshire to name a few.
Together with making my own work I teach batik, felting and ceramics, I have exhibited in various exhibitions within the UK and recently won the 2013 Lincolnshire Pride Award for my batik work.
