I live on the Sussex coast, within earshot of the sea and a short walk to the beach, and still get a kick from seeing it each day. Whenever I get the chance, I'm busy at my sewing machine or in my workshop, designing and making, listening to the radio and seagulls, and drinking too much tea and coffee.

My designs are different and original. They are a blend of modern functionality, individual style and traditional craftsmanship. As well as painting, dyeing and printing my own fabrics, I love to make use of rescued vintage linens, precious lace and good quality fabric remnants, many of which are now hard to find.
