I received a warm welcome by the WI on Wednesday afternoon this week. It was a pleasure to walk down memory lane and share my experience with the group about when I worked for Laura Ashley 1984 – 1989
I am available to deliver future talks for groups on the following themes:
“My love affair between textiles and fine art” An illustrated talk through drawings & paintings
I worked in the Laura Ashley textile design studio in Carno in the 1980’s where I became the senior colourist on the dress wear prints and since the 1990’s I have been a free-lance artist & designer working on various projects: commissions, public art and exhibited my artwork in various places including art centres and have sold a painting through Christie’s in London.
“Fossils in Art” An illustrated talk through drawings & paintings
The beauty and story behind fossils has always fascinated me and I have used them in my artwork for many years. Discovering the Radnorshire Museums fossil collection led me to produce more artworks inspired by their collection and show them in an exhibition at the museum gallery in 2014. I also joined their fossil club and the two palaeontologists who lead the club have also ignited my interest in geology.
