Inspired by brickwork surrounding and within West Norwood Cemetery and the way nature has enhanced the autumnal tones over time. A born and bred West Norwooder I have always loved the rich layers of history and culture in this part of London. A fibre artist predominately, I also work with watercolour and ink, taking inspiration from architecture and the natural world.
