About

I Make Stuff...

...all kinds of stuff. I am inspired by contradiction, taxidermy, surrealism, found objects (particularly roadkill), contrast, natural oddities and tourist’s trinkets.

I learnt to use a sewing machine when I was six, alternating between “trundle”, a hand crank Singer (my cousin/best friend and I took it in turns to power and steer) and my mum’s electric New Home. I now sew on a Bernina Minimatic, she was manufactured in the late 70s/early 80s so is just older than me. I have painted her in a rainbow of colours since I spend so much time looking at her.

I studied and misspent my youth at both London College of Fashion and Wimbledon School of Art and misspent some more time as an apprentice tattooist at Sith Tattoo Studio in Norwich. I have an undying love of machines with needles. I am now living back in Kent less than a mile from St Leonard's Crypt which should be visited by every bone enthusiast.

All of my patterns and designs are created by me. It makes me feel like some kind of fiendish sorceress when after a lot of frantic trials, manic errors and happy accidents, I create a 3 dimensional object from a flat piece of fabric. I am equally fascinated by the incongruousness of an object that would normally be hard, brittle and breakable made out of soft, malleable fabric.

My current obsession is with bones. Bones are beautiful and at any given time I have a few road-killed animals decaying in my rot box.

My mum affectionately calls me a Scruffy Individual.
