A mixed media artist creating with fabric, fibres, vintage laces and embellishments.

I have come from a background of working with fabrics including crazy patchwork and fibres including dyeing fleeces, spinning, weaving, knitting and crochet. These interests over the past few years have morphed into mixed media artworks of creating fabric lace books,journals, cards, bags, and collages.

I have a passion for creating with antique and vintage laces and fabrics incorporating the use of vintage images and cabinet cards as well as artworks from the pre-raphaelite era amongst others.

I also love to incorporate the use of French saints, madonna and child and similar images.

Other materials I use in my works inc. stamping, embellishments such as appliqued laces, ephemera, buttons, beads, trims and sari ribbons. I also love to dye mohair from our goat herd and use it with the same materials in felting collages.

I have been published in "Crazy Quilt Gatherings" Magazine and am teaching an on-line class with

Feel free to come and have a peek into my studio at where you can see many of my creations also.

I appreciate your visits to my shop as well as the wonderful friends I have made through the Etsy community.

I try where possible to wrap my items in tissue paper or similar, then bubble wrap and place the items usually in bubble wrap postpacks unless it is a quilt in which case I may use a box. In most cases I prefer to use recycled packing materials but if this is not your preference then please let me know.
