My workdesk in my studio

I completed a BA Hons Degree in Fashion & Textiles, specialising in embroidery at the UCE in Birmingham, graduating in 1994.

My work has been exhibited nationally and my handmade cards sold in shops across the UK, USA and Europe; including Liberty, Paperchase, Harrods, Heals, John Lewis, The Conran Shop, Oasis and Waterstones.

I also produced a range of framed original art pieces for Habitat which were exhibited and sold in their stores across the country.

My work has featured in magazines such as Home and Gardens, and been included in a number of books on handmade cards.

In addition to my studio work and commissions, in 2001 I set up an after school Art Club at a local primary school which I continue to enjoy running; and undertake a variety of workshops and community art projects, including many with the patients at the Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
