I have a lifelong love of textiles and embroidery and have developed a fascination with mixed media techniques. I'm also studying for the Distant Stitch Certificate Embroidery Certificate Level 3.and have enjoyed attending several of their Summer Schools.
Altogether these have provided me with fabulous opportunities to experiment with exciting texture and colour effects alongside my hand and machine embroidery skills [a match made in heaven]!
I've used them to create my handcrafted accessories, handmade books and jewellery.
