For many years I earned my living as a self employed dressmaker, specialising in ball gowns and embroidered wedding dresses.  I am also an experienced soft furnisher and upholsterer.

Together with professional work, I explored textile art, stitching, and creating pieces widely exhibited in SE England.

Recently, I have been involved with group work, designing and over-seeing creative works, with Culture Clash Sampler, Tunbridge wells Museum, the Women’s Institute and the SE Region of the Embroiderer’s Guild.  I also teach traditional techniques on a one to one basis.
