Tell us something we don’t know

I studied City and Guilds embroidery parts 1 and 2 which is a four year course. On completion of this I went on to do art foundation with the intention of doing the embroidery degree at MMU but discovered that I preferred paint so I went on to do a fine art degree in painting instead. However embroidery and textiles are still important to me, and are definitely an influencing factor in many of my paintings.
