Textile & mixed media artist using both hand and machine stitch, felting and embellishment to create wall art, greeting cards, gifts, garments and accessories.

Detailed statement:
The world around me provides inspiration, especially time spent in my garden and the Peak District. Sometimes my work will even include a leaf or some wool rescued from barbed wire. A passionate up-cycler, I collect and keep small pieces to use again.

I still use the sewing machine I was given at 16, which I used to study applied textiles. My specialist study involved batik and dying which I still use, but use a wide variety of textile art materials and techniques.
As a qualified teacher, I love to pass on creative stitch and art skills to others, encouraging play and experimentation in both workshops and individual tuition. I also create creative kits to facilitate creative journeys.

A member of the Society for Embroidered Work as well as local quilting and creative groups I love to both be inspired by and inspire others.
