Rag Rugs, Collage, Gesso paintings. 
Hand dyed calico’s made into Rag Rugs using the prodded or hooked method. This series is called Garden inspired by flowers and foliage. 

I started making proddy rag rugs whilst training at Chelsea School of Art studying Constructed Textiles.  All the ones I made were either for a commission or sold privately,  some 30 years later I have started making them again and I love them as much now as I did then! 
Collage is a medium I have always used for picture making and using the fragments normally discarded I am creating new material collages.
