"Truth is beauty, beauty is truth..."    (John Keats)

Making has always been my biggest source of joy. Growing up on a Welsh mountain side without a TV gave me plenty of space to nurture my creativity.  


Now as an adult, creative projects have become my refuge from the busyness of everyday life; my “still point of the turning world” (TS Eliot).

Making for me, is my meditation, using my hands to make brings my attention back into my body, it slows me down and after a while the chattering thoughts in my mind start to fade.  I find increasingly that having a creative project on the go provides the perfect antidote to the addiction and distraction of social media.  

I specialise in embroidery, calligraphy and coaching but I also love printing, drawing, cooking and photography - a truly multi-hyphened portfolio career! 


Do get in touch regarding commissions, events or workshops - I love to collaborate.


I strive to create beauty from a place of truth and it is a joy to be able to share my creations with the world.
