Elizabeth is a Textile Artist who works with paint, print, collage, machine and hand stitch within her work.

Following a 32 Year Nursing Career, Elizabeth had to retire early due to her health and in 2009 went on to do a BA(Hons) in Textile Art and an MA in Textile Design at Winchester School of Art.

Elizabeth has exhibited her work within galleries and in National shows. Continuing to be influenced by historic and contemporary artists she finds motivating people about textiles exciting and rewarding.

Her work is often inspired by a narrative of her own memories and journeys through life. The expression of imagination, fragility, motivation, experience and determination unfold within her work aiming to make the invisible memories-visible.

Elizabeth uses a variety of mixed media within her Exhibition pieces. Her miniature works of Art and Sketchbooks have been created from her own drawings.

Elizabeth is Co-Founder of the exhibiting Textile Art Group Visual Marks set up in 2013.
