I was born in Bodiam on Kent Sussex border on Hop Farm we had no TV so I used to draw and make rugs. Have even sown hop sacks to help my mum mend them, done hop picking. Moved to Hastings age 12 I think. I did some of my best art when ill – funnily enough did crayon and ink drawings now go to 2 craft sessions week am making rug for my sons wedding present. We do various craft, haven’t drawn for years then got inspired by outside in and craft sales to make money to group. My work various – in what I do can sew too.
