A love of embroidery and needle crafts was inspired from an early age by my mother and grandmother. They handed down skills that have been constant source of pleasure. After studying Environmental Science, my first career was as a Geography teacher. However it was after moving to the Welsh Marches that I was able to pursue my passion in needle crafts and textiles.

I find inspiration in a variety of influence,but am constantly drawn to nature. It is a fascination in the minute details found in plant,insect and birdlife which provide the inspiration for my work.

I hope to capture the detail, colour and form of nature by using a variety of needlework techniques such as machine embroidery and stump work.
