I am an internationally known textile artist, and have built a multi faceted knitwear design business from my isolated home in mid-Wales.
I studied Fine Art and Printmaking at Exeter College of Art and gained an MA in Printmaking at the Royal College of Art. This led to a fascination with William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement. On moving to Wales, hand knitting and crochet became my main medium of expression to create the nature-inspired designs which have become my trade-mark.
I have published six books, as well as contributing to many other books and magazines over the years. My most recent books, Crochet Inspiration published by Sixth and Spring (ISBN 9781933027), and Knitwear published by GMC (ISBN 9781861085191) continue my exploration of hand crafted textiles using both knit and crochet.
My mission is to inspire the handcrafter to be creative and to enjoy the process of making textiles by hand.
