Artist. Drawing With Stitch. Creative Thinking. Teaching and Learning.
May 2021 was the opening of Island Nations, a joint exhibition based in both Tokyo and Birmingham. It brought the work by practitioners from Birmingham City University and Joshibi University, Tokyo together in a beautiful exhibition exchange. My work was a stitch and collage piece depicting whisky distilleries in Japan and on the Scottish island of Islay. This was in the format of a scroll which spread across the exhibition space inviting the viewers to interact.
In August 2020 I joined with AccessArt – DrawAble to create a teaching and learning resource for schools based on my stitching and drawing techniques. See that here: https://www.accessart.org.uk/straight-line-drawings/
