Coral Reef A Fish Eye View
July Open Studios
I am an embroidery and textile artist heavily influenced and inspired by my love and fascination of the natural world. This is reflected in the subject matter I choose to create in stitch - which ranges from aerial views of allotments to vibrant and colourful coral reefs to iridescent beetles, birds and fish. My embroideries have a rich selection of stitches, texture, tones and colour to convey the form of the work I am creating in my own individual style.
My Allotment, A Bird's Eye View won The Saatchi Gallery Textile Takeover in 2020. The idea for creating the allotment aerial view had been one I had wanted to explore for quite a while. I had always found allotments mesmerising. I love that they have an organisation both aesthetically and on a practical level, yet there is an unkemptness too. I was drawn to this juxtaposition.
My work has expanded to designing bestselling embroidery patterns and kits of my work.
I was honoured to become a member of the the Society of Embroidered Works in 2019.
My work has been published in a variety of magazines.
