Inspirations

I love to design and make textile pieces in a variety of fabrics - my current favourites are linens old and new.  Other fabrics are personally painted, dyed and printed.

I have developed a personal style, using a hand-drawn approach to both machine and hand quilting. My linen quilts, pictures and small works are distinctive and bold in their design.

I have won a variety of awards and prizes for my work. 

Inspiration comes from the Hampshire and Dorset countryside and wide and wild travels in a small but well-appointed camper van!

I work to commission as well as having ongoing pieces for sale. I love to talk about my work too!

I have a studio in Eastleigh, Hampshire in The old Sorting Office.

....and I find that making things, being creative, makes me feel a bit like this!
