Carol Preston's Profile

About

For most of my life I have worked together with my partner, in the craft business as a producer of pressed flower jewelry. Latterly we ran a craft/gallery shop. After retiring from the shop I took up photography. I collect photos of places, flowers and small details that catch the eye and these I use to make composite pictures and designs. Now with the advent of digital technology I am delighted to see my own designs printed on fabrics. This is done beautifully for me in Birmingham, UK. These fabrics I make up into cushions, pillows and other textiles. Sometimes I add appliqué and add free machine embroidery so producing one-off items - no 2 can be the same. I pride myself on making a well finished product - double seams, raw edges finished, and in posting an order very quickly.
