I'm an English girl, living in Asheville, North Carolina USA. I grew up making things constantly, which turned into a passion for textiles and a degree in Textile Furnishing Design & Manufacture in London. My studies taught me a lot, and mostly that I wanted to design the fabric and then turn that fabric into a product which I could sell. I swiftly started a business in the UK and sold pillows and lampshades to stores such as Liberty of London, The Conran Store and around the world to independent and larger stores. Then, after 9 years it was time to grow a family so the business took a break for a while when I was busy with small people and all that they entail!
So now when I'm not caring for my 2 daughters, I take photographs of plants, trees and flowers, mostly that I’ve grown in my garden or in places that have special meaning to me. Then I manipulate those photos into 2d textile designs, which I get printed onto fabric and then I sew those up into products - pillows, dish towels, baskets, scarves, that kinda thing! All super soft yet functional.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them!
