My Bio
I have always had a strong love affair for art and design, and in particular textiles. I received my formal training for traditional hand embroidery during a three year apprenticeship with the Royal School of Needlework. There, I was taught over sixty different embroidery techniques and styles, including textile restoration. I graduated in 2005, with not only a diploma but with an Award from the Worshipful Company of Gold & Silver Wyre Drawers for a goldwork project undertaken in my second year.

Since graduating I have gained valuable work experience at Philip Treacy’s London Studio, Lulu Guinness head office. I have also had the privilege to undertake several private commissions and have also worked alongside a freelance film and TV costumier on various projects, private clients, stage and screen.

Today I make and design unique pieces whilst continuing to develop and expand upon skills gained from my time at the Royal School of Needlework. Recently I have moved into creating pieces in collaboration with other artists.

Somewhat too late for a spring clean. But for some reason I find myself logging back onto DeviantArt, I can't actually tell you the last time I actually logged into my account. Months? Years, surely? I popped back on as I saw a tweet from the official DA account and I thought hell, can I still remember my login details. And here I am. I am still around, and I am still stitching, but with my blog, website and social media accounts I am not on everything for very long. Call me fickle. I shan't make promises to be on here all the time, but it wouldn't hurt to pop on from time to time to see what everyone is working on, and upload a recent pro

If your in the area why not come along, free entry, various craft classes and over sixty designer/makers exhibiting their wares. Great way to get your Christmas shopping done. :thumb339661887:
