    ARTIST STATEMENT

    I am not young. I am a 62 year old grandmother who has been
    a painter all her life.
    I am at the moment a textile painter, fascinated with ancient Islamic textiles, embroidery, Turkomen, Shiraz, Suzani, Ottoman, China, Han, Ming, Qin, Han, Tang, Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing Dynasty.
    There is so much history to discover. I have spent the last few years on China alone and barely touched it. I am attracted at the moment to the tribes of the Middle East. Such richness of native colours. I enjoy doing the research.

    I have travelled all over the world with my trusty Canon camera and smuggled back amazing Chinese silk to make floorcloths.

    If I were to describe my work it would be a textile painter. I have always been fascinated by ethnic work, cultural contributions, and organic colour.

    I am a colour person with floral overtones, curves, Indienne, Jaaint my own designs which actually are a memory of what I have been researching.

    I love detail well done. It shows caring. I believe that my work makes people smile.
    I only paint what I perceive to be beautiful things.

    If you have lived through what I have lived through as many women will say my age it is a decision to paint beauty, it is a decision not to be old. I plan on being young all my life.
