Over the years I have restored many items of furniture, including many traditional cane work items, either for home or as commissions, always choosing to learn how to work using traditional techniques and materials, alongside my trusty old Singer sewing machine!
As a Fine Artist I love making and doing – whether this is planning and designing a painting, a print, a drawing, a page design, a book or leaflet. From creating concepts, observing and taking wildlife notes and recording, through to the final artwork, or restoring furniture! Its all makes up a wonderful daily mix of incorporating atwork, colour with hand made items, so I find there’s never a quiet day!
Traditional restoration skills require time, skill and patience. By working with traditonal methods, it helps to keep these specialist skills in existence. Member of Heritage Crafts.
