Textile artist

About Me



I am a self taught textile artist living and working in Mid Devon.

Having always had a love of both sewing and art, I now use fabrics and embellishments just as I find them to create beautiful individual pieces of textile art with a water colour feel to them. My work is inspired by the natural world around me, and I produce contemporary botanical pieces as well as seascapes and landscapes.

Colour and texture play a big part in my work, and I am always experimenting with new combinations.


Since starting my own business in 2014 my work has developed and evolved. I specialise in free motion machine embroidery, and now have a recognisable style producing original detailed pieces of work using a wide variety of fabrics, thread, lace, buttons and beads.

My range also includes greeting cards,  fine art giclee prints and small gifts.

I am happy to discuss commissions and will work with you to get the result you are looking for.
