 An obsession with Trees


Drawing and printmaking helps me to explore the interesting surface qualities of natural forms, both in the landscape and in found objects such as shells and fossils.

I enjoy stitching freely into paper and drawing with the sewing machine. My current work involves constructing layered mixed media backgrounds for stitch. These are combined with soluble machine embroidery to form vessels and relief panels. Silk paper is also used as a background for stitch.

Stitched Papers - New Developments 


Hangings, framed and mounted pieces, books and vessels made using tissue paper which is either hand-dyed or painted with watercolour, embellished with free machine embroidery and layered using a papier mâché technique.

Other work is composed of handmade paper, made from recycling waste paper and thread, which is then stitched.

Limited edition prints, photographs, hand dyed and handmade papers and cards also available.

Based in Hampshire, I am a Member of the Society of Designer Craftsmen and PaperWEIGHT
