I am a textile artist from Hampshire, UK. After completing my Foundation Degree in Stitched Textiles in 2013, I have since spent my time exhibiting at various shows and exhibitions around the country.
I am a regular exhibitor at the Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace and have also shown my work at The Designer Guild Shop at Pall Mall Galleries.
For me, exhibitions are an excellent opportunity to meet and greet new people. I absolutely love sharing my enthusiasm for textiles through my Talks & Workshops too.
In recent months, I have taken on a new studio space and I am extremely pleased to now be able to offer workshops to groups within my very own creative space!
In 2018, I was asked to run a week-long residential textile course at Crafty Retreats, near Limoges in France. It was an incredibly successful week and very rewarding to be able to spend a whole week with a group of students, producing designs on textiles.
My work is very much design-based and I am always having ‘lightbulb’ moments where I come up with something new to get making. It really keeps me busy to always be trying out new designs on fabric.
Alongside all of my shows and workshops, I am a proud member of the ZeroNine textile group. The group is a collection of City & Guilds classmates who have since remained in touch and now exhibit their work in different locations throughout the year.
