Emma's Profile

As a child, my Mum kept me occupied with fuzzy felt and painting, sticking and glueing from a very early age.
As a teenager and through University started customising and making my own clothes and later when I got my own flat I started making cushions and blinds form the retro fabric I made my Mum save from the 1970's house I grew up in.
