Why did she make things?
Well, she enjoyed it of course,
But it also helped her somehow
To remember who she was
And where she came from.
Happiness lies in the joy of achievement
And the thrill of creative effort -
And sewing in the company of friends.
I have always had a love of fabrics, textiles and art inspired by nature. In 2016 I qualified in Machine Embroidery (City & Guilds Level 3) at Malvern School of Art and I am a founding member of the Fusion16 Textile Group and a member of the Cotswold Embroiderers Guild.
I am passionate about creating textile art and experimenting with colour, natural dyes and a variety of fabrics from across the world. I use these in combination with pieces from old clothes to bring life and love into each piece.
I am available for commissions and creating personal pieces of textile art inspired by photographs for occasions such as weddings & births.
