As a textile artist I’m passionate about creating using cloth and thread. I’ve been sewing since I was a very small child and one of my earliest memories is standing at my mother’s treadle sewing machine (because I was too short to sit and reach the peddle) mesmerized by the way I could shape and connect fabric pieces together with a needle and thread.

Today I’m still as mesmerized as I was back then, but I also have a deeper understanding of how working creatively with fabric and thread has helped to shape my life and sustain me through the years, on a much deeper level than I could have imagined back when I began. For me, creating, particularly with fabric and thread, is a deeply spiritual and often healing practice. And along the way I’ve discovered that the journey is really what is most important.




I believe that knowledge and inspiration should be shared and I do this through workshops, online classes and tutorials, with the hope that it inspires others to connect with their creative nature which is at the core of everything we do.

We love hearing from our community!
