embroidery artist and sewing tutor
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!
