This is me in the photo above (I'm the one on the right) and I am a graphic designer and textile artist. These two occupations complement each other and I enjoy both. Sometimes the two overlap and my skills and experience give me a unique take on what a client requires. For instance, I design and layout The Quilter magazine for the Quilters' Guild of the British isles.
As a graphic designer, I specialise in complex educational books but I can design anything for print. I also create textile art for exhibitions and commissions, lecture in person and on Zoom and teach workshops around the country.
