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

As a designer seamstress I design and make small batch & made-to-order workwear and apparel from my off-grid tiny house studio.
My ethos is strongly rooted in the principals of practicality, longevity, beauty and sustainability. I use fabrics that are sourced for their provenance and quality, that handle and age well, my designs are inspired by vintage workwear and costume, contemporary in design with a classical British edge.

My work is greatly influenced by my surrounding rural community and many creative friends, alongside a love of outdoor projects, homegrown food, cooking and gardening. I make beautiful and functional workwear and accessories for the kitchen, garden, home and outdoors.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I am passionate about creativity and self expression through clothing, I find much joy in the creative process of design and making, and love to see my creations being lived in, worked in and loved.
