I am a mixed media artist based in a small village in Leicestershire. I work from home, printing on my kitchen table and sewing in my workroom at the top of the house.
I studied fine art at university in Belfast where I pursued my interest in layers and detail.
Thread & Ink combines my love of stitch and print to draw and embellish fabrics and paper. I’m still interested in detail and layers, and this can be seen predominantly in my textiles from choosing the right fabric, mixing and printing the ink, then adding more detail by using appliqué and embroidery. The cushions and pictures I make are all unique, I don’t make two the same.
I also handprint cards, notebooks, purses and footstools.
