Here are some examples of my work and commissions:

‘Home Sweet Home’ one off instillation piece
‘Home Sweet Home’ is an oversized embroidered book, an instillation piece. The work is a part of a collaborative project with Studio 21 members called ‘Continuum - a sense of place’.

Deconstructed magazines are reconstructed, stitched and washed, exposing captions and words. Edges are embellished with delicate detailing forming the illusion of a fabric collection.

Exhibition pieces as seen at East Berkshire College Windsor June 2007
The large theatrical Ruffs are also free standing, as seen at the Knitting and Stitching shows in England and Ireland. They are easily transported for exhibitions, galleries, museums and talks.
