Originally from Harrogate, North Yorkshire, Gill gained BA (Hons) in English Literature in 1985 and taught English for 4 years. She then began pursuing her passion for Arts and Crafts, and was awarded a Foundation Degree in Contemporary Textile Practice from Cleveland College of Art and Design. Gill now divides her time between teaching at an Outdoor Education Centre and being an artist.
Gill believes the two work well together, allowing her to draw inspiration daily from the local landscape and flora.
Her images recently have focussed on hay meadows and portray flowers, grasses and sward, work created during a residency in the beautiful Nidderdale region of North Yorkshire .
Gill’s work shows her developing artistic practice in exploring a variety of print techniques. She works on both cloth and paper and loves colour!
Gill practices from her studio in Pateley Bridge. She has had her work selected for numerous exhibitions including The Mercer Gallery Open, 2009 and 2012, and Platform Open, Morphets, Harrogate, 2015 and 2016.
