Festival: 2017

I work using free-motion machine embroidery where I draw using a sewing machine, completely freehand. I love to be outside taking photographs and collecting things that inspire my work, with my lifelong love of birds being a prominent feature. I use natural, high quality linen fabric as a backdrop to my illustrations and add hints of subtle colours to bring my embroideries to life, in a highly detailed and tactile way. Along with my own work, I take commissions of all kinds from large scale wall panels to personalised pet portraits.
