My accessible artwork, embroidery kits and knitting patterns are designed to delight and entertain and are inspired by Pop Culture, nature and my four legged friends. They take a light hearted look at the human condition using the unaffected simplicity of my animal muses who are incapable of the often painful self awareness, awkwardness and embarrassment which can plague human interaction and consciousness.
My art has won a number of accolades including Gold in the UK Knitted Textile Awards in 2014 for my knitted dog head sculptures, Silver in the 2013 awards with my knitted paintings, and in 2012 one of my knitwear designs came second in the Rowan International Design Competition. Most recently I have been working with DMC Creative in the production of four exclusive embroidery kit designs for their 2017 collection. Current knitting patterns and embroidery designs can be purchased as pdf downloads in my Etsy shop.
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 knitty know how posts in support of my workshops. I hope you enjoy it.
