My work as an artist has evolved from my experiences as a child, within the South Wales valleys. I have explored traditional stitch and print within my work, reflecting on the working class values of community life with its humour and warmth.
My work also reflects on the women who were in my life as a child, who loved and nurtured me and influenced who I am as an artist today.
The aim of my work is to bring these discarded often worn vintage textiles back to life with humour and a feeling of belonging. Each piece of work holds its own personality and is a unique piece.

Commissioning a piece of work is really exciting – it is a chance to have something made especially for you and an opportunity to really engage in the creative process.
Perhaps you need accessories to go with a particular outfit or a piece of furniture to fit a specific space in your home. We can work with you to design something truly unique. You’ll be able to discuss your ideas, likes and dislikes with the Maker and together create a piece of craft, handmade for you.
This is just a first step, so don't worry, there’ll be plenty of chances to discuss details before finalising a commission.
