I studied Fashion Design in the 1980’s and went on to have a busy career in Retail buying for a Department Store. Buying gave me great opportunities to use my creativity and express my passion for product range and design.
Today this love of design, colour and fabric is the focus of my textile art and I now design and make embroidered fabric collage pictures. Inspiration for my designs comes mainly from the natural world and will often include birds and other animals. Colour plays a key part in my work and I enhance each piece with detailed hand and machine stitch.
All my pictures are original one-offs and whilst I work in series featuring a particular subject no two pictures are ever the same. Along with the original pieces I also have a range of limited edition giclée prints and greetings cards.
