Painting my world in thread

I have spent my whole life making things. Like most artists my work has evolved over the years. I have worked with paper, paint and even sponge cake and fondant icing, but my heart has found its happy place among thread and fabric.

I work predominantly in free motion machine embroidery and appliqué. Free motion sewing is where you drop the sewing machine’s feed-dogs (the metal teeth that pull the fabric under the sewing machine needle), switch to a darning foot and suddenly the needle becomes a paint brush. Indeed this is sometimes called ‘thread painting’. I love to paint wildlife and the world around me in thread.

I live in Bath with a very patient man and two black and white cats.
