handbags are a celebration of my
love of colour, design, drama and
texture.Each is individually designed
and crafted in my studio.
Intrigued and fascinated by flowers and their structure, I have been inspired
to create my Sensational Flowers range,
where bold designs and strong colours are intricately embellished with machine
embroidery and beadwork.
Historical costumes are also a source of inspiration where ruffles, puffs
and ruching are amongst the techniques I use.
My textile art has evolved from my academic study of art, craft, design
and a tradition of making.
I also love the things that I make to have a use, but within that realm my designs
are sensuous, tactile, exciting,
surprising and vibrant with colour.
