Free Motion Machine Embroideries

My embroideries are attached. They are sewn on silk that has been painted and then over- embroidered freestyle on a domestic sewing machine. My studio includes a store of around 400 spools of cotton thread in a huge range of colours so that I can select the one that's just right to produce the subtle blend I need.

    diverse textile art
    I create differing forms of textile art, from detailed thread paintings to appliques to felted pictures, bags and covered books. I love natural forms.

    For many years I was a teacher of florists, travelling all over the world, invited to pass on European British style to students and fellow tutors. I now put all of my energy into my textiles, using natural fibres - silk, wool, linen and cotton - to create detailed landscape and flower thread paintings, appliques and felted pictures and practical items. I am, of course, inspired by natural forms; flowers, plants, sometimes insects and birds. I immerse myself in the textures of these lovely materials and beautful colours, blending and highlighting. I'm constantly learning and loving my new direction..thread painting, wall art, machine embroidery, acorns, frost
