I am an MA graduate from London’s Royal College of Art and, in the past, have sold my hand knits from a studio at Camden Lock, on a stall at Covent Garden's Apple market, from my own small shop and to boutiques in London, Zurich, Paris,Tokyo and America.

My hand knits are based on both multi-colour intarsia and one-colour textured styles:

Inspiration for intarsia is drawn from favourite flowers - cascading climbers such as wisteria and clematis, tall sunflowers and velvety pansies. Other influences are endangered animals such as pandas, elephants and polar bears.

Inspiration for textured styles comes from the history of British knitting. I love experimenting with a multitude of stitches from the past - bobbles, bells, cables and lace – updating them and making the designs…

Inspiration for textured styles comes from the history of British knitting. I love experimenting with a multitude of stitches from the past - bobbles, bells, cables and lace – updating them and making the designs more stylish. Cardigans and sweaters are often knitted with cabled ribs or scalloped hems and cuffs for extra effect.

I use 4ply weight cotton, wool or cashmere and shapes can be anything – cardigan, long coat, sweater, waistcoat or bolero. I also make gloves, scarves and bags.

My hand knits are British classics with a twist - contemporary styles that can be worn in the day time for work or in the evening for visits to the theatre or restaurants. They also look good worn casually with a pair of jeans.
