About

My Journey

I’m an Artist/Maker working with fabric & embroidery.
I also use mixed media in my work including painting, mono-printing & collage to create one-off original art pieces.
My background is in Textiles.
Growing up in Cheshire, Art and Textiles were my favourite subjects at school.
When I finished school I went straight to Art College to study General Art & Design then a BTEC in Surface Pattern Design.
Graduating in 1994, I gained a BA (hons) Degree in Fashion & Textiles at the UCE in Birmingham.
Moving to Sheffield shortly afterwards, I set up my home studio, where I’ve been making cards, pictures, brooches & decorations ever since.
I’ve sold my work in Habitat, Liberty, Paperchase, The Conran Shop, John Lewis, Harrods, Heals & Waterstones; and continue to sell my work locally through shops and galleries, and at Art & Craft shows.
I love city life and also living so close to the Peak District which I find very inspiring.
In 2001 I set up an Afterschool Art Club, working with 4-11 year olds in all areas of Art & Crafts.
I enjoy inspiring others to be creative and teach regular embroidery & mixed media workshops to adults.
