I am an embroidery and mixed media artist creating botanical sculptures, and decorative pieces in the heart of the Devonshire countryside. My work uses free-motion embroidery techniques onto silk fabric and soluble material, recreating botanical detail down to the stamen, roots, moss and soil.
I am greatly inspired by the outstanding countryside that surrounds me, working with the seasons,
collecting and dissecting flora for botanical accuracy where possible. My presentation is influenced by antique specimens and Victorian curiosities. I love to collect found and antique items such as old glass bottles and specimen domes.
Conservation of our endangered and rare flora and the impact it has on our ec0-system is important to me. I use deadstock silks and eco-friendly materials as much as possible.
