Following a successful 32 year Nursing Career in which Elizabeth achieved her Nursing Degree and Masters in Education.
Although having to retire early, Elizabeth was fortunate to attend Winchester School of Art, Southampton University and obtain a degree in Textile Art and an MA in Textile Design. It was very exciting to be chosen for New Designers where she was invited to become a member of the Guild of Designer Craftsmen and then a selected graduate of the Embroiderer’s Guild.
As a Textile Artist, Elizabeth works with paint, print, collage and stitch within her work.
She has exhibited her work within galleries and in National shows and continues to be influenced by historic and contemporary artists.
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 finds sharing textile skills exciting and rewarding and enjoys motivating people.
