About

My accessible artwork, embroidery and knitting patterns are designed to delight and entertain. They are inspired by Pop Culture, nature and my four legged friends. Through my art I take a light hearted look at the human condition using the unaffected simplicity of my animal muses.

I have won a number of accolades including Gold in the UK Knitted Textile Awards in 2014 for my knitted dog head sculptures, Silver in 2013 for my knitted paintings and second in 2012 in the Rowan International Design Competition.

In 2017 I designed four exclusive embroidery kit designs for DMC Creative.

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.
