I producer hand-made, funky up-cycled clothing and accessories and soft furnishings. Using screen printing and recycled denim I create colourful and creative designs, layering images and taking inspiration from nature and my regular visits toCornwall.

The freedom to explore colour, pattern and form through drawing and printmaking , spontaneously reacting to the world around me.

Originally trained in Textile design I spent my early years making and selling silk clothes and accessories in a variety of craft outlets throughout the country including Covent Garden Jubilee Market.
