Instead of a pencil or paintbrush I create pieces of art using my sewing machine, fabric and thread.
I studied Fashion at Falmouth School of Art and Design in the early 90’s. After a long break bringing up my children (of which I have 5 aged 2 to nearly 20) I went back to college and did an A Level in photography and then a NCFE in Textiles, which rekindled my love of creating. On the spur of the moment I treated myself to a second hand sewing machine and haven’t looked back!
Based in Cornwall I take inspiration from my surroundings. I use a variety of vintage and modern fabric to create my work and each piece is unique.
