About me

Multi-media textile artist and illustrator. My work incorporates free-motion embroidery, applique, felt and print. The designs vary from quirky fabric applique to realistic free-motion embroidered illustrations. I use pen and watercolour in my illustrations and for larger paintings mainly acrylic. Originally trained as a weave designer.
