I create inspirational and lively designs for quilts and stitcheries that combine my unique jointed appliqué templates and free motion machine drawing technique. I am inspired by words- sayings and lovely phrases I come across and also by children and the joy they find in the mundane.
As an experienced speaker and teacher, I regularly host talks and workshops focusing on the design process and the creative techniques I use.
I have written four books so far (and have no plans to stop!): ‘Freya and Fred- a week of quilts for a girl and her dog’, ‘Hearty Good Wishes- coastal quilts’, 'A Field Guide- quilts for all seasons' and 'Home Quilt Home'.
I live in a happy muddle with my family and a dog called Betty.
