I am a fibre artist from Essex in the United Kingdom. I trained as a sculptor at Loughborough College of Art and Design, and taught Art in the UK secondary education system for 10 years. Eight years ago I learnt to felt and since that point I was hooked by all things fibre. I like to work predominantly with merino and silk fibres, at times combining recycled fabrics and mixed media. I like to embellish my imagery with embroidery. My work explores themes of womanhood, love, loss, relationships and home. I live and work in Plymouth, Michigan.
