Above the Tide
Above the Tide was created in 2015 as a result of my love of taking photographs to capture images of Cornish rock formations, water reflections and coastal flowers. My photographs are printed on a wide range of materials including glass, aluminium, melamine and textiles.
I also enjoy creating textile wall art and shoulder bags using my three favourite crafts, knitting, crochet and weaving. The designs link with my photography as they focus on coastal flowers as well as beaches with shells and rolling waves, tranquil local rivers and well-known Cornish landmarks.
To add to the variety, I recently discovered the ancient art of tatting. Historically tatting has been used for embellishing clothing with lacy edgings and collars. I use similar techniques for my unique range of beaded bracelets, necklets and earrings.
I was very excited when Glazed Expression invited me to decorate a collection of ceramic platters, cake trays, jugs, mugs as well as a wide range of animals including owls, fish and rabbits.
