Working with mixed media stitched textiles gives me great pleasure.
As well as the joy in the art of making and exploring, there are the friendships formed as work grows.

The Orkney landscape is beautiful - green fields, gently rounded heather-covered hills and views of water everywhere you turn. The islands are small so the sea and the coast are never far away - lovely little bays and fjord-like fingers of tidal water edged with acid green seaweeds. Inland, there are dozens of small lochs reeded and brilliant blue when the sun shines.
There are lovely views across the harbours and small towns, in this case of Stromness on the western side of the Msinland.
