My special interests: Japanese aesthetics, pictorial art and contemporary quilts, embroidery, mixed-media, colour play. Applique, piecing, photography. Challenges keep me on my toes, searching for inspiration in everyday things, especially nature.

Since joining Contemporary Quilt I have been encouraged and inspired by the work of members and their willingness to share their techniques and offer advice.

Was Membership Officer for Contemporary Quilt for three years, finishing with about 800 members. That was a great way to get to know other quilters and I enjoyed the committee meetings in York too.
Since then I have also taken an interest in modern quilts, the spacial layouts tie in nicely with my liking of Japanese aesthetics which also put a high value on 'negative' or plain areas.
