About

Contemporary Embroideries depicting all things great about British life.

INSPIRATION

I believe that habit and habitat draw a veil over our eyes. We become so accustomed to the people and places we see every day that eventually we fail to see them properly at all. The single greatest driving force behind my work is to pull back the veil on our surroundings by capturing a snap shot revealing the beauty and quirkiness of British life which is a constant source of enjoyment and inspiration.

CREATION.

I produce my textile pieces with a combination of free form machine embroidery and traditional, hand embroidering techniques.

ARTIST BACKGROUND

I have been trading full time since 2008 and I am now very happy to be working as a full-time designer maker, creating contemporary textile art from my studio based in the elegant, seaside town of Eastbourne, East Sussex.

I have proudly exhibited my work internationally and also more recently created work for John Lewis and for The View from The Shard.

My obsession for all things textiles led me to successfully gaining a BA(Hons) in Textile and Surface Design in 2007.
