Sitting in front of the fire on a wintery night separating my latest batch of baby Leicester curls. They're so soft and fluffy!


Be inspired by the colours and textures of unique hand crafted and dyed fibres.

I have worked as an artist for over twenty years with a particular love for all things textile. I can blame my mother for that, as she was a dressmaker in her early years and then went on to creating clothing for 5 children. She was also a remarkable embroiderer and knitter. How could I not be inspired!

I have a love of all things textile! And I get very excited about colour! The process of seeing a combination of colours and hues in nature or in my general day to day life that inspires me to recreate it using dyes, silk and wool.

I Have exhibited my textile and mixed media art in a number of galleries and exhibitions with paintings and wall hangings being sold around the world.

My love of feltmaking and silk painting is very closely connected and you may like to visit my store Sesenarts
to see the variety of scarves and wraps that I have created using items from this shop.

I have just listed cushions with images based on my own original mixed media paintings. The cushion are then printed and created with a quality finish by Art of Where.

And just to add the spice to the variety in my life, I have just added my new store For original wall art and home decor based on my floral and abstract paintings.

Please contact me if you would like to purchase numerous items and the shipping seems huge! Shipping on Etsy is determined by number of items purchased rather that weight. I am very happy to combine your order into a new listing with the correct shipping price.

Other countries will vary up to $28.00
Please note that the above rates do not include tracking which may be purchased for an extra cost.

All items are shipped the same day or first business day after purchase. Please note that generally there are no problems, but I cannot guarantee arrival in the above times due to postal circumstances beyond my control. These shipping times may vary due to weather, strikes and holiday load.

Unfortunately bulky items incur a high shipping cost to a number of international countries. This is determined by size/width and not necessarily by weight.

Please note that the secondary shipping costs only pertain to items being posted to the same address. If you wish another item to be posted elsewhere,please notify me via convo/message first and I will relist the articles for you at the changed price.

This Privacy Policy describes how and when I collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from me, contact me, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

Information I Collect

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of jewelry, for example), if you contact me directly.

Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: 4 years.
5. If transferring personal information outside of Europe, how the transfer will be handled

GDPR requires you to disclose if you transfer personal information outside of the EU and the legal bases you rely on to do so, such as consent and contractual necessity. Nathan uses Google Cloud, which is Privacy Shield certified, so he should explain to his buyers that he relies on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer of his buyers’ personal information outside of the EU. For example:

Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU

I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
6. His buyers’ rights regarding his use of their personal information and his contact details

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.
