I live and work from home in the City of Durham and originate from Derbyshire. I have been stitching and creating  for  over 25 years but started up a part-time business years ago  after completing an honours degree in Creative Practice from Newcastle college of art and design/ Leeds Met University, for which I received First Class.

1 am most inspired by natural forms and retro designs which come across in my stylised flower landscapes.  My work is primarily concerned with colour, composition and quality of workmanship.  I would describe what I do as craft as I love producing carefully made pieces.  My chief aim is to please the eye and brighten up the homes which take in my work.
