he world around me provides inspiration, especially time spent in my garden and the Peak District. A passionate up-cycler, I collect and keep small pieces to use again.
Often experimenting with many textile art materials, often work has many layers which may be heat distressed.
I still use the sewing machine I was given at 16,having been taught to use a sewing machine by my great aunt when I was 7 years old and inspired to study applied textiles.
Working in my Sheffield home studio where I also run Ecclesall Textile School for ages 8 to 98!
As a qualified teacher, I love to pass on creative stitch skills to others, encouraging play and experimentation.
