Embroidery for me is like alchemy – mesmerising and enticing. Its possibilities are endless and after twenty years I am still enamoured with it. I love to combine hand and machine stitching. The slow, therapeutic quality of hand sewing is a contrast to the speed and excitement possible with my trusty Bernina.
Recently I have been working on a commission to make a series of three embroideries inspired by the sea along the south coast. I am also designing some flower brooches in a range of colours which will be available via my Etsy shop.
I regularly update my blog with my latest projects and exploration of different ideas in textiles. In the future I plan to add some interviews with other textile artists as well as discussions around creativity, techniques and inspirations.
