After attending York College of Art and Cleveland Collage Of Art & Design many years ago training in Graphic Design & Textile Art.

I have continued to work in much the same relaxed style ever since and for more than 25 years i have I drawn with stitches, to be seen.


I live lightly in County Durham with my husband, two chilren, my three kitty cats and our tortoise.

I have a passion for anything vintage, sketching, the Northeast coastline, coffee....and of course cake.


When not at my wee Darlington studio doing all number of textile related things, I can be found sketching ourdoors for my next landscape, snug in my home studio making things of beauty or of an evening, patchworking with my cat Agatha on my knee.

"My life has been measured in stitches"


Thanks for stopping by.

Have a look around and feel free to contact me regarding workshops or commissions
