About me

I’m a textile artist living in North Shropshire with a passion for colour and all things stitch. After sampling other textiles I discovered free machine embroidery in 2002. I burned out my first sewing machine but found new love in a Bernina 1008.

I find inspiration in all sorts of places, including the landscape around me, a sentence jotted down or sometimes a piece of found or inherited cloth. As I have a strong sense of narrative, you will find that whatever the piece of stitch, there is always a tale to tell.


I studied General Art & Design at Wrexham, North Wales and Fashion and Textile Design at the University of Ulster, Belfast. BA (HONS) 1990~1993
