My style is warmly rustic, reflecting a deep love of nature, colour and quirky detail – designs and yarn preferences express an appreciation of functional and comforting knitting, with intriguing structural elements or decorative touches.

Over the years I’ve experienced a multitude of arts & crafts including dressmaking, sculpture, pottery, watercolour painting, beading, jewellery making, and more latterly printmaking. Yarn, threads & fibres continue to be my true passions though, with my focus being on hand knitting and creative textiles including felt making, crochet and textile art.

I enjoy creating my own designs with felt, fabric and fibres to make textile jewellery, accessories, and artworks. As well as using a range of techniques, I am a bit of a magpie and will often use buttons and found 'treasures' to embellish my work.
