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.

Popping up on the third Sunday of every month, Pollen Inner-City Flower Market delivers an abundance of greenery, live music and art, local produce and more, celebrating the vibrant city of Sheffield and its people.
I'm really looking forward to it. Here’s the link to the website:
