One week to go!


See that?? That’s time flying by! Voting started in the Craft & Design Selected Maker Awards at the start of the year and ends on March 31st – that’s next week!

These highly regarded national awards are based on an Online Public Vote for British and Irish Designer Makers – this vote determines a list of 12 makers in six categories including textiles – which is where you’ll find me!

I would be so grateful if you could take a few minutes to show your appreciation of my textiles by voting for me online!

 And here are the HisKidz spiral dye workshop results – sorry I didn’t get to see everyone on Saturday but I hope you like what you see here – the pieces are already finding their way into houses and rooftops!
I’ve nearly done all the buildings now – then it’ll be on to that stormy sea!
See you soon,

I am a professional textile artist specializing in Appliqué and Free Motion machine stitching. In order to create a unique colour palette, I hand dye my own fabrics and then use these to create the landscapes and coastal scenes recorded in my sketchbook. I often incorporate recycled or vintage fabrics in my work - they add meaning to the story the work is telling. I love being so close to the Northumbrian coast and countryside and I especially like taking time walk and draw these stunning landscapes
