About

My accessible art, embroidery and knitting patterns are designed to delight and entertain. Inspired by Pop Culture and animals, my work takes a light hearted look at the human condition using the unaffected simplicity of furry and feathered muses.

I have won a number of accolades including Gold in the UK Knitted Textile Awards in 2014 for my knitted dog head sculptures and Silver in 2013 for my knitted life paintings.

In 2012 I was delighted to be placed second in the Rowan International Design Competition with a modular constructed, 1920s inspired knitted evening top.

In 2017 I was excited to work with DMC Creative designing four exclusive embroidery kits for them.

On this site you will find some examples of my recent work, along with a blog where I keep you up to date with news, current inspiration and a few “know how” posts in support of my patterns and workshops.
