Unique garments and accessories, innovative textile designs, prints and mixed-media pieces... Individual commissions welcomed.

And so, another New Year and so many new possibilities to explore! I just love to see the knitting needles and daffodils in my studio talking to each other – plus the long, low winter light creeping across my yarn ‘stash’. It’s going to be a great year…

This was the favourite ‘seasonal’ garment in my display at this year’s Horsham ‘Contemporary Art Fair’. For the 1st time, I’ve introduced a ‘fake fur’ thread into the fabric of my classic ‘Evolution’ coat. The drape of this garment on the body is just SO luxurious…

I had such a great selection of re-cycled fabric strips, ribbons and fancy threads hanging-up in my studio, that I couldn’t resist simply knotting them loosely together to create a triangular shawl, leaving an extremely long, decorative fringe…

I couldn’t resist creating this tribute to ‘BANKSY’ and the ‘shredded painting’ incident of his work at a recent Sotheby’s auction. It’s just that most of my work starts life by looking ‘shredded’ ie. a collection of threads, that I then construct into something solid. So, who knows… Read More

This summer has been great for exhibitions both inside and outside, with mostly sunny weather, which is always a bonus! I love the challenge of making my display work around the features I find at each venue – like fabulously large tables and curved bay windows…

My first time exhibiting at this venue (Farlington School) for the HAOS Art Trail was an absolute pleasure! Not only the space, light and cream cakes, but the opportunity to exhibit alongside work by students in their excellent ‘Art’ and ‘Fashion’ departments…

I’ve just started playing with large blocks of colour in my knitted ‘Making Waves’ shawls. I like the contrast between the underlying small, repetitive knitted structure with the large, abstract colour design…

Time to start thinking about new designs to add to my range of digitally-printed silk fabrics. I just love this opportunity to work with some of my drawings, paintings etc. The central ‘meandering line’ in this repeat image, seemed to appear by accident, rather than design…
