I show at art festivals and trails in France, and the UK mostly in Bristol. The West Bristol Arts Trail is an annual event every October. It's encouraging to find that people like my work enough to buy my pieces, and it's great to be asked to make a piece on commission.
I offer introductory mosaic courses at Bristol Folk House and elsewhere, at my workshop in France and also at home in Bristol. If you would like to have a go, or if you would like to offer lessons as a present for somebody, please get in touch.
I have spent my professional life teaching, counselling and training. Drawing, painting and sewing have always been important to me as ways of relaxing from the tensions this work has entailed. I have long been attracted to mosaics, and on a chance visit to Briare - a sweet little town on the Loire – I found there is a ceramics factory which throws its unwanted tiles out into the land behind. With a little time and effort I could pick up bags of these tiles and this is what I started with.
Although making the mosaics takes up a lot of my time, I have not let it stop my other activities. I am still an active counsellor, working mainly with young people and with couples. View Website.
