Festival: 2022

I’m a textile artist working mostly with recycled and vintage fabric. I use appliqué (collage with fabrics) to create images, which I then make into cushions (and sometimes hot water bottle covers, bags or pictures). All designs are my own and usually animal-based. I love the way that the different colours, patterns and textures of the fabric can be combined to create something completely new.

Somewhere along the way I also came up with the idea of converting old eggcups into tiny pin cushions. These are made by creating small ball-shaped cushions to fit perfectly inside the eggcups and allow me to indulge my passion for mixing and matching colours and patterns, albeit on a much smaller scale
