About Me

My photo

My work is mainly Free-motion embroidery; I like to work with Hand dyeing, Appliqué, Textural layering and Lace effects on soluble fabric, to create fabrics rich in texture and colour. I draw inspiration from just about everything including, nature, art, fantasy, and historic and religious influences. Fine machine embroidered detail and hand beading is incorporated into my wedding garments and special occasion wear

Butterfly Mask - Free-motion layers


My Little Seahorse -  Free-motion Layers - This was inspired by a magazine article by a fellow Textile Artist
