I make botanical creations and studies out of fabrics, and use free motion embroidery techniques to draw with thread.
Reminiscent of antiquated old botanical illustrations, I recreate as much detail from the stamen to the roots - all made from fabrics, thread and yarn.
I like to work with the seasons, getting inspiration from the countryside around me in Devon, where I am lucky enough to live!
I make small pieces of wearable jewellery. Embroidered on silk and taffeta fabrics, they are lightweight and detailed, with a silver plated brooch fixing at the back.
I have sold and exhibited full botanical studies, all made from embroidered fabrics on a wire framework. These have been sold as gifts, mounted on walls, set in vases or use as table decorations for special events and occasions.
I am open to commissions.
