I create work to share what I see as I explore and observe the world around me. Drawing is how I look and process what I see, through my personal multi hued lens.  Colour makes me happy, it enlivens and brings me great joy.

As much as I love drawing, working with threads and fabrics is where I feel most creative and expressive.

Much of my stitching is done on my trusty old Bernina, it’s not a fancy computerized or digital preprogrammed thing, just a basic domestic sewing machine I use as a drawing tool.

It’s a really playful and free way of creating a line, building up textures, patterns and shapes in my work.

Originally from England, I do love to chat over a cup of tea, but when it comes to how I see things, stitching my colourful pieces is how I hope to share feelings of joy and appreciation of life.
