My first recollection of embroidery is hand stitching a tray cloth as a 10 year old over 60 years ago.

Sewing and knitting were a necessity to clothe my three children.

At 50 I was introduced to freestyle machine stitching and still love all aspects of the technique.

My inspiration comes mainly from the natural world. I love the use of colour, texture, pattern and experimenting with new techniques. 

I'm also attempting to work more freely with abstract ideas but I find this very challenging.
