I finished my Foundation Degree in 2013 and had great success selling my Bags and Pinnies at the Exhibition, I have since featured them in a number of venues  including the Knitting Stitching show at Alexandra Palace, The Designer Guild Shop at Pall Mall Galleries and the ICHF show at NEC Birmingham.

Exhibiting means I have had the chance to meet a great number of new people. I really enjoy sharing my enthusiasm through my talks and workshops.

In 2018  I was lucky to be asked to run a weeks residential course at Crafty Retreats, Nr Limoges, France. It was very rewarding to be able to spend a whole week working with students, some lovely designs were produced.

I have also visited Jersey and worked at the beautiful Harbour Gallery

I am constantly getting new ideas for designs and this keeps me busy printing new fabrics. I have great fun trying out the new prints. Please have a look my shop page.

I have been a member of Zero Nine Textile Artists since the group began. We were all at college together doing our City and Guilds.Since then we have exhibited together as well as doing our own exhibitions and work. Please visit the Zero Nine Textile Artists site.

I have had the opportunity to run courses for Art Van Go in Knebworth as well as on their stand at various shows. I am also running a print course at Ashcroft Arts Centre
