Art in Bloom

Welcome to Art in Bloom, the web site I have created to display my art work. I live in Chichester, West Sussex and really enjoy a whole host of activities including hand spinning and painting many of the flowers that grow in my garden.

I primarily use watercolours to paint a wide range flowers such as roses, dahlias, peonies and sunflowers. I also use specialist paints to hand paint on glass and create a unique selection of latch hook fabric rugs.

In addition, I frame all my own work using professional picture framing equipment.

I have learnt to spin and now produce a variety of different handspun yarns. These yarns include wool from a variety of British sheep; for example, Bluefaced Leicester, Corriedale, as well as Rare Breed Sheep such as Whitefaced Woodland and Portland. I also spin yarn from locally-sourced Alpaca fleeces. In addition I hand-dye yarn and produce a variety hand-knitted garments using many of these yarns.

I am a regular exhibitor in the Chichester Open Studios Art Trail. Details can be found on the exhibitions page.
