For as long as I can remember I have been interested in drawing and painting. At the age of 6 my Grandmother introduced me to her sewing machine and I have been making things ever since.
After joining my local branch of Embroiderers Guild I became inspired to study City & Guilds in Creative Embroidery.
Building on the skills I learnt I now hand paint all my fabric, which I then use to create city and townscapes, embellishing them with free machine embroidery my work reflects my love of buildings and architecture together with my love of fabric, paint and stitch.
I exhibit at a variety of venues and I am a regular exhibitor at The West Country Quilt Show, Bristol and The Craft 4 Crafters Show in Exeter. I also give talks and run workshops, I feel very lucky that I am able to share my passion with others.
