About

I create bespoke textile pieces in all forms, using both hand and machine embroidery, traditional and contemporary techniques to create pieces of textile art, furnishings and garments.  Inspiration comes from context of the work; for a church commission, for example, it may be the building, or the life and teachings of a saint; for a textile art piece, it may be a response to the setting for the commission; for a garment, the individual who will wear it.  I am not defined by one style.
