Gill originally trained as a Home Economics teacher and her work in schools included 'Needlework' - mainly dressmaking. With major curriculum changes this evolved into creative textiles encompassing a wide range of techniques with pupil experimentation at it's heart. She later studied with the Open University.
Shortly after retiring, a one day course in Machine Embroidery led her to a City & Guilds finals exhibition – within half an hour she was hooked & enrolled on a diploma course in Embroidery.
Since graduating in 2005 Gill has continued to experiment with the wide range of techniques & materials used in contemporary embroidery. The Rood Screen in Llanegryn church inspired much of her college & more recent work.
Among pieces she has sold are small books, Nuno felt slates, Goldwork items & tiny stitched cards. If you are interested in purchasing any of Gill's work, please contact her directly.
