I am an Exmouth based Christian artist/designer maker, and work in many different media including textiles, metals, wood etc. as well as 2D work in watercolour pencil, pastels and acrylics. I am inspired by my faith and the world around me, primarily working on commissions in close collaboration with people and their individual requirements.  Having gained a degree in 3D design, I worked mainly on animal commissions in pencil and pastel.  More recently, I've exhibited at the Christian Resource Exhibition in 2012 at Westpoint in Exeter, and currently run needle-felting workshops at Bicton College and Dartington Hall.   I believe creativity is a gift, and is to be nurtured in everyone.  For the last 4 and a half years I have been enabling young adults with learning disabilities to make beautiful things, and I never cease to be blessed  by what they are able to bring to their work no matter what their physical or mental restrictions.
