I am an award winning, qualified tutor and lecturer with a passion and love of textiles and Northumberland. I have over 15yrs experience of teaching and over 20yrs of public speaking.
I’ve taught City & Guilds Embroidery courses and now work freelance as a tutor, lecturer and occasionally writing for magazines. I’ve organised several solo and joint exhibitions.
I have qualifications in City & Guilds Embroidery, Adult Education, a Diploma in Art History, qualifications in Archaeology, Islamic Art and Indian Art & Architecture from the University of Oxford.
In a past life I worked in a laboratory as a molecular biologist. I prefer stitching.
