I love to play with fabric and thread! All my life I have created things, developing ideas and techniques along the way.
My passion for machine embroidery has led me to develop not only my own work, but a line of hand-dyed fabrics, which I am now offering for sale on this site.

My wall hangings also often have 3D additions to create extra depth and interest to the surface. The pieces are made seperately and assembled into a whole.

What I love to make most of all is beautiful objects which can be used and enjoyed.
