Thank you for visiting my Website.
Welcome to my online shop. My studio is based in Manchester’s Craft and Design Centre in the Northern Quarter in Manchester, U.K. where I design and make unique handmade products. Using natural materials such as lambs leather, cow hide, suede and cottons I create contemporary, simple, functional shapes for accessories and bags.
After completing my degree in Embroidery in 2003 at Manchester Metropolitan University, I have developed my skills as a maker and use traditional embroidery techniques such as appliqué and hand stitch to enhance my designs and a carefully chosen combination of colours to complement them.
I am drawn to detail and embellishment, and combine these to make functional items. I love to add intricate handstitch in traditional linen thread to my work as I see these small punctuations finish a piece of work. A time consuming task but the finished result of each is unique.
I hope you enjoy having a look through my work. Please get in touch via the contacts page if you have any questions and also have a look out for my new ‘Commissions’ page to see what other recent work I have been enjoying making for people.
