I am a textile artist and tutor working on a variety of projects in and around Milton Keynes.
I have a degree in Fashion and Textiles from Leicester Polytechnic and have designed in a variety of areas including: a Design/manufacturing company in Leicester; making costumes for a Contemporary Dance company and for a Performing Arts Department of Leicester Polytechnic.
For the last 10 years I’ve been exploring the medium of Creative Textiles, and I’m addicted. I teach textiles part-time in adult education and often do large projects in primary schools in the area. I love sharing my skills, enthusiasm and inspiration with people of all ages. I do a lot of dyeing for my base fabrics, often create print blocks and then work in a number of ways with collage and then free-motion machine or hand embroidery. I am a member of the Contemporary Quilters Guild and Embroiderers Guild, have exhibited at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham. I do talks for embroidery groups and in the last 2 years have been heavily involved in promoting textiles in a gallery I run in Milton Keynes.
Having recently visited Natalie, Lawrence and Stan the dog at Sweet Nothings, I’m delighted to be offering workshops inspired by their wonderful farmhouse in the glorious setting of the Charente region of France.
