How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I am dedicated to the crafts of hand and machine embroidery, mixed media fibre art, and anything that involves sewing, paint, fabric and design. I love natural wool, linens and silks and often incorporate my own hand-spun threads and yarns into my work. I use dyes and printing techniques and am forever trying something new! An experienced tutor I love to inspire and enable creativity.
