I research, design and make artwork, Illustrations, props and costumes. Working with private clients and public organisations including museums and galleries. Click the link to Commissioned work to view examples of previous projects. I would be happy to provide further information, references, pricing guides or to discuss a proposal.
Repurposed and one off designs for sale or by commission. I enjoy working with furniture, lamps or interesting objects. I reupholster chairs using traditional techniques. Recover lampshades and turn toys into pin cushions. I particularly like to use my own designed and printed fabrics, or perhaps embellished or constructed fabrics I've found or make myself.
I work in a variety of media to make my work and enjoy exploring traditional and non traditional craft to express an idea. I exhibit and sell my work but my work is often personal and continues to take me on its own surprising journeys. To see more of my work click the Artworking button.
