These examples show how my work is evolving through technique and subject matter .
Painting with stitches has always been my primary intention and the addition of silk painting gives the work another dimension
During the 1990's I created a large body of work using the same techniques of painted silk backgrounds as a base for stitched detail
The subject matter moved from landscapes to gardens and then to woodlands. Incorporating snow scenes, fruit, vegetables and close ups of flowers along the way
The publishing of my various books has either reflected each period or helped create it
Since then I have been exploring different approaches to my work and the most recent is at the top of the selection shown below.
Each phase of development is demonstrated in one or more examples from the period.
