I live in Cheshire with my husband, two children and pet dog. Having graduated in 1990 with a B.ed Hon degree, majoring in art, I now teach part time, which allows me to indulge my passion for being creative. I work from a studio that we had built in our garden, writing stories for children aged 0 – 16, illustrating and creating felt characters to help bring some of the stories alive. Making felt began once my own children started school. I quickly progressed from making flat pieces to practical handbags, gloves and slippers, progressing to decorative vessels and animal characters that are all my own original designs, made from merino wool fibres. Most are available to buy or on commission by contacting me, Needle Felt Commissions start at £120, Toy Style Wet Felt Commissions (with needle felt detailing) start at £95 Many of my felt characters have stories or profiles attached to them giving them individual names and personalities. I take inspiration from everywhere, keeping an open mind and seeing the goodness and beauty in people, situations and the environment.
