I work part time in hospital arts, with patients facing life limiting illness. Sometimes I work with patients and their loved ones helping and encouraging them to make art but sometimes I get asked to make pieces for the hospital.
I was asked to create a new donations box for St Bede’s, it took a little while but it is now finished!
I wanted to create the mood of a beautiful garden and used needle felting, a process I often use with participants, embellished with hand and free machine embroidery. There’s a lot of French knots on there!
Hope you like it!

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

One thought on “A Gift Box”
St. Bede’s are so blessed. Who could resist making a donation into such a beautiful receptacle!
