Are you looking for a bespoke hand woven piece of art, be it functional or decorative?  If so, have a look at my creations on the For Sale page.

I have been weaving on various kinds of handlooms for many years, creating a variety of hand-woven items for sale. I am passionate about designing and making beautiful, colourful objects in my studio such as scarves, rugs, wall-hangings and runners as well as cushions, ribbons and bags.  You could even buy a piece of fabric before it gets turned into a finished article!

I weave with yarns produced from natural fibres, particularly wool, silk, alpaca and linen, often experimenting with new fibres as they become available.  Many of the yarns I have hand-spun and hand-dyed to give the creations character, charm and uniqueness.

My inspiration comes mainly from the garden which is filled with shrubs, flowers and trees and also from the environment around our cottage on the Shropshire/Cheshire border.
