About Me

I grew up in a creative family – my mum knits, and my dad worked at a craft shop when I was younger. He made cross stitch pictures and plaster of Paris models, and was always bringing interesting things home for my sister and I to do.

I have tried my hand at a number of crafts, including cardmaking, spinning, knitting, crochet and attempts at dressmaking, but my loves are embroidery and mixed media collages. I enjoy creating rich combinations of colour and texture, combining hand stitch and machine stitch on interesting backgrounds including wool/felt and velvet.

I also enjoy printing and creating visual textures onto a range of papers and fabrics, and using these in my work.
