Hi, I’m Angela and I’m a textile artist. I’ve been quilting for 6 years. It started out as a bit of a hobby, which I fitted in around a day job and then a growing family. Then we moved to the glorious Somerset countryside. I claimed an area at the top of a landing as my own, filled it with piles of fabric, my sewing machine and wrote notices to the kids and husband: please do not rummage; work in progress. Finally, two years ago I expanded into my beloved studio, a converted milking shed and I have found myself consumed with work.
Being a textile artist is now my full time occupation and my career. I love making these pictures. It’s what I have to do. I hope you like my work and will join me as, day-by-day and step-by-step, I aim to improve my skills and my work. I want to share with you the ins and outs of how I get to a finished piece. And I’d love to hear your comments.
My textile pictures combine my love of landscapes, painting and quilting. I have painted for many years and following a workshop with the wonderful Effie Galletly I realised I could combine my passions by creating landscapes with textiles.
I’m inspired by the landscapes around me, the beautiful countryside of south west England, its coastline, its valleys and hills, especially its craggy ‘tors.’
I have a husband, two girls and a dog, Bruno, a Springer Spaniel. He appears in some photographs on the site because he’s a regular feature in my studio.
