About

I am a dreamer! I'm convinced the world is a much more magical place than it seems from the outside. I like to think I can exist on this ethereal plane just by looking for it everywhere, whether it's in a woodland glade, a starry night, a trickling stream, or even light shining off a windchime. I design and create original handmade fibre sculptures for everyone, everywhere, and try to bring to you a glimpse of a more mysterious world.
 
I'm proud to have been featured on the Etsy front page, the Buy Handmade British blog, Darn Good Yarn, Cuteable, Craftcult and in many treasuries including one featuring innovative knitting artists.
 
I'm really into texture, and art that you can really FEEL. As a result I love the unique results from needle felting, and the soft yielding cosyness I get from knitting. And strangely, though I'm left-handed, I've…

I'm really into texture, and art that you can really FEEL. As a result I love the unique results from needle felting, and the soft yielding cosyness I get from knitting. And strangely, though I'm left-handed, I've found I can needle felt with my right too! This definitely comes in handy when I've stabbed myself too many times! :)
 
I am inspired by folk tales, legends, and the natural world, and so I mainly craft creatures from these stories. All of my sculptures are entirely original, and all have their own unique personality and simply come to life once they're finished!
I am also an amigurumi enthusiast, and think everyone needs a bit of 'cute' in their lives!
 
I live in the north of England, within sight of both a river and a castle, and am constantly inspired by all things natural and earthy. I am particularly fond of legends and folk tales and the way they affect our view of the world. I absolutely LOVE items with a bit of a twist to them, and so my home is filled with the rustic, the handmade, the quirky and the weird.
 
What's life without magic?
