I’m completely seduced by the textiles of the Bauhaus, the simplicity of the Shakers, precious objects found on beaches… and anything orange…
I am a prolific contributor to craft & lifestyle magazines, a consummate maker and have just completed the 5th in my series of ‘Take a….’ craft books. My career began with a BA (Hons)at Bath in Visual Communication, subsequently working in the design industry in London for 9 years as a graphic designer in retail, interiors, TV and fashion.
I spent many childhood Easters in the Scilly Isles & Summers with my American mother’s family in Long Island & Martha’s Vineyard, also travelling widely in Europe – I speak French (not too bad!) and Italian (ropey!).
I live in Brighton, on the south coast of England, I teach profoundly deaf teenagers & make, knit, stitch, write… in my attic studio or in my little beach hut when the weather permits.
