Welcome and thanks for looking at my website.
My home and studio is situated in the depths of the South Norfolk countryside. I work surrounded by farmed fields.
Inspiration comes from surroundings at home and away, historical artefacts, visits to museums and galleries, scientific discoveries & adventures. I hope I’m showing you the textile projects that I enjoy creating and the things that inspire them.
I combine hand stitch with felting, machine embroidery and mixed media using traditional and new techniques in a modern, innovative manner attempting to combine this with unusual metal thread work and thread work techniques. I love working with woollen fabric which I dye, needle felt and stitch. I’m currently experimenting with weaving backgrounds for stitch.
I studied “Textiles” with the Open College of the Arts and “Embroidery” with City & Guilds. I have exhibited independently, with the Embroiderers’ Guild and with TOPstitch.
I am keen textile sketchbook creator and explorer.
