embroidery artist and sewing tutor

ABOUT ME

I’m fascinated by the past as a subject for embroidery art pieces, though I like to add a contemporary twist.I have recently completed a collection of stitched pictures based on original sketches and photographs of shops and scenes from Victorian and Edwardian Penarth.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION

I begin with old photographs and my own sketches and watercolours, then set about interpreting them using a combination of collage applique, free-motion, and hand embroidery techniques. The process requires a bit of research regarding period features, such as colours of clothing and buildings, or the style of typography on shops’ signage.​I like each piece to tell a story about the people and events included in the subject material. Where possible, I like to incorporate vintage fabrics sourced from my local town. Sometimes my work is unashamedly nostalgic but it always has heart!​
