I’ve been going through a tough time at the moment, and as much as I try not to let personal problems interfere with my professional life, I’m afraid to say that they are doing. However, I still have several projects on the go and in mind, and I recently set myself up in a new studio, so things are moving forward.

I’m finding that, at present, I’m much better off trying to do practical things, rather than trying to sit down and work. I have recently arranged to teach some cross-stitch workshops in Sheffield, in June and July, and I’m working on the patterns and a sample piece. If anyone would like to know more, please contact me.

A new project which is forming itself in my head is based on the Medieval poem Pearl. I came across it while reading and the imagery was so striking, and so in keeping with my own work that I felt inspired by it. Here’s a link to Bill Stanton’s translation of it

I’m planning to make a large painting of it, in the style of a banner, but I’m still at the ideas stage at present.
