I specialise in free machine embroidery. I’m always exploring new possibilities and ideas whilst creating my unique and distinctive designs in wall art, handbags and jewellery. I enjoy creating and sharing craft skills and ideas along with showing people how they can incorporate up-cycled, recycled or reclaimed materials into their craft.
I love creating, DIYing and revelling in the creative possibilities of materials I find, sometimes in the strangest places! My interest in craft began whilst young, having a very creative mother who was always creating something new. Whilst still at school I spent much of my spare time sewing, embroidering, spinning and knitting.
I live in Melbourne, Australia where I create pieces which include photography, applique and embroidery. I specialise in free machine embroidery using the needle as my paint brush and am always exploring new possibilities and ideas. I am happy to accept commissions for my work.
