I am a contemporary textile artist, and have been creating and selling art pieces for over twenty years.
I love the process of working with fabric and stitch, and have been collecting both for as long as I can remember, having amassed a treasured store of new, re-used and vintage material and threads.
In my studio in Sheffield I am surrounded by their beautiful colours, patterns and textures; and by a vast collection of buttons, beads, ribbons, and interesting found objects.
Inspiration for my work comes from many places, but most often from the colours, shapes and textures I see in nature; I’m ever grateful for its beauty, in flowers, birds, and animals, and in the calming effect of the landscape and the sea.
