After taking a voluntary redundancy, clearing my desk and experiencing the best drive home ever, I decided to enrol on a City & Guilds Embroidery Part 1 at Norwich City College. Unfortunately the college was unable to offer Part 2, so I embarked upon a thoroughly enjoyable distance learning Machine Embroidery course with Maggie Grey. I then became a day school junkie and, at one time, I am sure Jean Littlejohn must have thought I was a stalker!
I have a passion for lace and machine embroidered structures/slips and have pursued these interests through corsets, shawls, children's dresses and men's and women's clothing. Through all of these areas I have tried to impart the feeling of a passed age as if the viewer is looking through the cobwebs of time.
My present body of work sees me engrossed in the wonderful world of Entomology and this never ceases to inspire me.
