From the deep dark wood through the garden and down to the seashore I take inspiration from and celebrate our beautiful natural world in textiles and other media...with a little bit of whimsy thrown in.
Toadstools especially, with their curious forms and colours and with all their magic and folklore, inspire me greatly and are an enduring part of my work.
Each one of a kind item is made with love and care and I hope you enjoy owning or wearing a little piece of my creative world as much as I enjoy creating it.
My ethos is very much to reuse and repurpose pre-loved items and materials – firstly as these are valuable parts of our history and have stories to tell of their previous lives and secondly as I believe we need to minimise our impact on earths resources and not be so wasteful. I only use newly produced items and materials when I really have to and my packaging is recyclable, resuable or compostable.
From small carefully made velvet toadstools, perfect gifts for mushroom lovers and fairy lovers to one of a kind textile sewing wraps and journals made from vintage, antique, natural or reclaimed materials. I hope you enjoy browsing!
