textiles – moo moo and scruff
I’ve always had a love of craft and textile art and along with the innate need to collect fabrics, vintage lace and haberdashery I love sewing, felt making and fabric manipulation. My latest textile range called Moo Moo and Scruff is a Sculptural range of quirky needle felted mice, designed to bring a little joy to the viewer. My textile work is sold in galleries and shops throughout the UK and a collection is currently available to buy here from my online shop. Along with my collection of textiles I have also written a project book for the 20 to make book series, it is called stitched fabric brooches and was a joy to create with projects suitable for all abilities and ages.
My art prints are high quality fine art giclée prints of my original mixed media paintings. As a mixed media artist I use a wonderful variety of mediums from watercolour, ink, collage, print and stitch. Inspired to paint the places I’ve visited some of my favourites include Clovelly, Polperro, Venice and of course local to me the stunning Bradgate Park, Leicestershire. For anyone midlands based my contemporary prints can be purchased at the wonderful Wistow Gallery, or here from my online shop.
A little bit of me the mum coming through! The baby clothes obsession and the desire to create a baby clothes keepsake has resulted in the creation of the baby grow bunny. I wanted to create something quirky with personality and each one I make certainly has its own character. For further information, please click below.
I love to share my techniques and inspire others to make so running workshops is very important to me. I always give an introduction to my work, discuss what inspires me and the creative journey I’m on. I find creative workshops always have such a great buzz to them as people come together to inspire and encourage, escaping from everyday life to get lost for just a few hours in something fun and exciting. Plus, there’s lots of tea and cake!
Working with a range of techniques and materials for my own work I am able to offer a range of seasonal workshops all aimed to build confidence have fun experimenting with new techniques and inspire you to go home and continue to create and make.
