I have been sewing since the age of 2. I like natural fabrics with an interesting weave or texture - linen, ticking, grain sacking, denim. These fabrics are designed to last and get better with age.
I often use vintage or second hand fabric, to be more sustainable and low waste. I enjoy handstitching, such as Sashiko, and like to use pieces of loved fabrics to make textile art. These pieces are inspired by geological layers that I handstitch with circles - the molecules, atoms, craters and bubbles that also appear in my jewellery.
