My first love is Embroidery and textiles, I studied at the Royal School of Needlework
, and graduated in 2002 gaining a Diploma with Distinction, since then I've worked free lance as a textile artist and teacher of embroidery and then run a little shop for five years, selling vintage, antiques and arts & crafts. I closed the shop in 2014, but now I have the time to do something I've always wanted to do, design textiles and develop a range of Crewel Work Kits
I get a lot out of walking and getting about in the Dorset countryside, which is beautiful in this part of the world, so inspiration, thankfully, comes thick and fast, and usually from the most unexpected of places.
I’ve appreciated nature and everything that comes with it all my life, and what better way to celebrate these things then to immortalize them in my designs.
