"IF YOU SIT VERY STILL"

70th Birthday Present

This piece was inspired by the title of my Mother's book - "If You Sit Very Still".  The title came from a quote from a dream she had, in which her sister, who had disappeared, told her: "If you sit very still you can hear the sun move".

"WIGGLE"

Favourite Word

This piece was inspired by the client's favourite word "wiggle".  It began with calligraphy of the word "wiggle" and developed into a series of stitched wiggly lines based around the natural wiggle of the Thames river.

FOX FAMILY

First Father's Day Gift

Struggling to think of the perfect and adequate first Father's Day gift for her husband, my client requested a bespoke embroidery piece depicting their family as foxes.

Gift for a new home

Favourite quote.

This piece was based around the client's favourite quote:

"What you seek is seeking you" by Rumi.

"What Remains?"

This piece was inspired by seed pods that, for me, are a symbol of  hope for new life and a reminder of the beauty in the continuous cycle of life that is always present.
