I was born and raised in the North West of England and I enjoyed the outdoors from an early age. I adore anything to do with nature, plants, trees and animals. My background is in Textile design, surface decoration which lends itself well to the outdoors. I love to sew and create one off pieces, manipulating fabrics, creating interesting textures and designs.
Pedal Petals arose from a family bike ride down the boardwalk at Huntington Beach, CA. I was waiting for my family to return with ice creams and thought wouldn't it be fun to make clip on silk flowers for all these lovely bikes riding by.. I made my first one and the response was positive so I have been making them for friends and family since. Last year I started my shop on Etsy and I love putting together Pedal Petals for customers, carefully packaging them up and shipping them off. It brings me a smile every time :)
