A truely 3D tree. Attached to the background textile picture with the addition of a shelf. Becoming more sculptural with my textile work.  This piece is inspired by a special tree on Dartmoor which is at my favorite picnic spot - my grandchildren and I are shaping great memories in its shadow.  £80

Early One Morning

Early One Morning

I pass a field each day on my way to work which makes me smile. It is such a beautiful shape and edged with glorious trees - that field sets me up for a day in the office.£55

Clumps of trees create a certain atmosphere. They are either inviting or mysterious - whichever, they beg to be explored. £100

My work is becoming more abstract - this type of work creates a picture, a frame for a mirror, a cover for a book, or a paperweight.

To the Lighthouse

To the Lighthouse

Godrevey Lighthouse, Gwithian, Nr St Ives is a very special place for me - a happy place. This piece is formed with knitting, thousands of beads and the waves from a skirt donated by a friend when I told her it would make a fabulous sea.

Shelter

Shelter

I have created several dry stone walls with sheep - the rocks are made from alpaca wool bound with bits of old tights - the colour in the fleece creates a very rock like quality but the fine covering makes them tactile, yet resilient to touch. £50

Memories of Rajesthan

Memories of Rajesthan

I entered a competition in 2013 and this piece won the "Visitor's Choice". Behind each door there is a photo printed on linen. There is lots of beading and the bouganvillia is made from silk I found in the souk in Marrakesh.

Morning Bluebells

Morning Bluebells

Spring is a time of promise and my sister-in-law, Sue and I have had many walks amongst bluebells together. I love the mistiness the purple blue haze the flowers creates in between the trees

Happy Fish

Happy Fish

I created this picture whilst on holiday at Sennen Cove, Cornwall. There are layers of voile which partially cover lots of beading. I think the fish is very happy in his environment.

I have started making fabricvases. This rather poor photo, I hope, gives you a feel for these fun ornaments. A glass popped inside can hold real or dried flowers. These can be made to match your upholstery or curtain fabric.
