I’m an artist from East Sussex, originally from London. I’m best known for using a domestic sewing machine but that’s just the how, not the why!
I am inspired by colour and pattern, as well as wild and windy places – the antithesis to my native London and my home in soft Sussex.
I enjoy nothing better than finding an unwanted piece of fabric and breathing new life into it by adding it to my work. As well as colourful recycled fabrics, I love using old lace, beads, buttons, and recycled papers like maps and music. Techniques used include stitch, collage, appliqué, feltmaking and painting.
I’m often asked for my opinion on sewing machines, so I’ve drawn up a handy checklist of features I recommend you look for when considering a new machine.
