Much of my life I have been a maker, during my years as a performance and voice tutor, as well as a professional actor. I have a passion for using natural materials, wool, linen, cottons, carefully sourced. I free handsew, create 3 D free handsewn wall art, collage, and textile tactile Jewellery. Before moving to SW France 5 years ago, I sold my pieces in various makers shops in East Sussex and also at fairs eg Selvedge at Chelsea. I am,in France part of makers cooperatives and sell my work in Boutique des Createurs and pop ups. I love inspiring other like minded people with a passion for handmade and passing on tips and skills i have learnt over the years. I could not imagine life without making.
