I am a Textile Artist working just outside the Lake District National Park in West Cumbria.
I am lucky to be living within reach of the northern Lake District and the more industrial west coast, both are great inspiration in my work. Working from my lovely studio (a renovated summer house) in the garden, I use applique and free-machine embroidery to create a range of contemporary, functional and decorative textile pieces.
I have a BA and MA in Contemporary Applied Arts from my studies at the University of Cumbria and am also a qualified teacher.
I enjoy running textiles courses both for adults and children, predominantly in the West Cumbria area.
