I have been living in Dumfries and Galloway for nearly 20 years. Its a stunning location to live and work in. We have a great range of habitats here from the hills to the woodlands, rivers to the coastline and also the towns and villages. I make decorative cushions and wallhangings from my collection of fabrics and threads that i have bought over the years. I spend a lot of time playing around with colours, shapes and different fabrics for my designs. Machine stitching helps to bring it all together. For my cards, pictures and bookmarks i use pen and watercolour to creat my loose sketchy style of flower illustrations. My individual designs and creations take time through research and experimentation and will have a personal meaning for me. I love the woodlands, its one of my favourite places to be, where I feel a connection and inspiration with the trees, the birds singing and the rain falling through the leaves. I hope to continue to develop and experiment with all the work i do and have fun as well.
