About Me

I am a self taught artist with a love of animals and wildlife. I don't limit myself to any particular medium and I'm always experimenting with different ways to create art. However fibre art/needle felting has become my main focus.

I work from my home studio in the beautiful Staffordshire Moorlands.

You can find me and my creations/artwork at Leek Totally Local Artisan Market, which is held on the first Sunday of the month -  you can also order my artwork and greetings cards from Etsy or contact me directly.

I  facilitate regular needle felting and beginners watercolour workshops in Staffordshire and it's surrounding counties.
