I am one truly happy girl for being selected to have a studio at The Sorting Office; a project run by the Culture Unit of Eastleigh Borough Council. I have been working at home for years but it's now great to be with like minded people. I gained a degree at West Surrey College of Art and Design in printed and woven textiles, and City & Guilds in Embroidery which suited me because it was more textural. From there I decided to become good at something! Hence my progression into felt making and translating my drawings and paintings in to pictures.I 've been researching my family history and am relating this to my art work and textiles.

I'm a felt artist exploring family history through historical maps and clothing. I also make gorgeous nuno scarves. I love to dye my own materials which makes my work unique.
