Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you - Frank Lloyd Wright

I'm drawn to nature and to books and reading. I love being surrounded by nature where I find constant inspiration. My embroidery is created by my hand and is a celebration of nature and stories and the wonders that surround us. This practise of textiles forms the base for all my work. 
I don't want to mimic nature but to use it to search and discover through stitching and painting individual pieces that sing and show a deep love of plants, animals and birds.
I use the finest of threads, usually sourced second hand and often combine my stitching with lace and pressed dried flowers from my garden.
Based in East Sussex I work in the sunniest room in my rural home where I design and create embroidery art.

Why the name? Well I have a BA (Hons) Degree in Sculpture Fine Art but I accidentally found myself falling in love with using textiles and embroidery after my mother gave me some of her embroidery threads.
