In 2019 I was awarded the BEM in the Queen's Birthday Honours for Services to Textile Art in N Ireland
I have sewn since I was sent to boarding school when I was just over 5 years old as I had to do all my own mending. In 1985 I went to a Patchwork meeting and was hooked. I have had my work in exhibitions in Argentina, Bavaria, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, Holland, Jamaica, Japan, Russia, Switzerland and the USA.
