Hello and welcome to my website!
I am a textile and product designer and design from my home here in Gloucestershire, England in an area that is renowned for it's natural beauty and abundance of wildlife. I live on the edge of 500 acres of National Trust land and the incredible flora and fauna of the area certainly inspire my design work. Walking out early each morning with my dogs along the hillsides here never fails to provide an idea for a design. The hedgerows, butterflies, wildflowers, deer, foxes and an array of birds have all been featured in my work. I so love dogs too and they also regularly work their way into my designs!
My designs start off as sketches and I then develop them into a repeating digital file that is then printed in England onto a linen union fabric. This is then coated to produce a water resistant oilcloth which being wipeable is perfect for my collection of products from shoulder bags to purses. The products themselves are also designed by myself.
I love sewing and creating and most of my products are made here at my studio on my trusted sewing machine with the larger bags made in a small factory in the south of England.
I have been a vegetarian for over thirty years and all of my designs are approved as vegan by PeTA. It is very important to me to produce work that has no impact on animals.
Gardening, house renovation and photography are also my hobbies and more images can be found on Instagram.
I ship worldwide from my website and I do hope you find something that catches your eye!
Very best wishes,
