A series of artworks taking inspiration from the different people and cultures that reside in Pendle; it's rich past and present.

An investigation into how people use their culture and way of life to express themselves.

This has been translated into rich, flamboyant and vibrant colours and patterns; the artist finds herself engrossed by the unusual colour combinations and patterns and how they work to inform a mood, experience, or atmosphere.  Working closely with community members, she has taken inspiration from discussions around culture and ways of life here, which have informed the art work.


The paintings and fabrics are inspired by the beautiful landscapes and cultures around Pendle. The designs and artwork glow with positive energy.  The combinations of mixed media, patern, texture and colour bring joy to the challenging experiences people in Pendle meet every day.


Hand-dying techniques, painting techniques & digital printing were used to create these pieces.


This was a self-directed project funded by Arts Council England and supported by In-Situ.
