    I am a textile artist based in South Wirral, Cheshire. Originally from the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, still a place I regard as home, I grew up surrounded by the Forest’s wonderful and ancient woodlands, rolling hills and rivers as well as a variety of wildlife.

    Inspired by the natural world around me, I combine my passion for drawing and painting with contemporary textile techniques.

    After gaining a first class honours degree in design and an MA in Fine Art, I chose to specialize in textile art combining drawing and painting with hand and machine embroidery. Taking inspiration from the innate irregularity of patterns found in nature, capturing its unique beauty and unpredictability. Influenced by botanical illustrations, I create distinctive and wonderful representations of art found in nature.
