Since the age of 6, I have been interested in arts and crafts with early experiences in sewing and knitting. That interest has just grown stronger over the years. I now create clothing and household and personal accessories at my sewing machine. In the field of art, I specialise in batik but have also worked in oils and water colours. My garden, natural things around me and a strong Christian faith are often my inspiration for creating pictures. I am a fully trained teacher and use my skills in general tutoring and running art workshops. These interests have now been translated into a web site (www.dotsworkbox.co.uk) where you can find samples of much of my work.
