Working in my home studio in Moseley, Birmimgham, I produce a range of embroidered products, including one-off textile pieces (framed and unframed), greeting cards, brooches, pincushions and needlecases, glasses and phone cases, cushions and more.
Inspired by the natural world (particularly birds and wild flowers), vintage book illustrations and domestic life, I use a combination of free machine and hand embroidery to create my inividually worked pieces.
I love drawing and find stitch is a wonderful way to translate my work into textured and detailed illustrations. Keeping a sketchbook is a vital part of the developmental process for me. Through mixed media experimentation and close observational drawing, I can document and accumulate ideas, that often influence final outcomes and provide a resoure for future work.
I sell through Contemporary Craft Fairs, local Arts Markets and Galleries. Please contact me if you wish to discuss, commission or purchase any of my work.

Inspired by "The Observers Book of Birds" - lovely little Wren.
