Love all things creative but felt making has become something of a passion! I regularly sell my landscapes and seascapes at Handmade Harris Craft Fairs on the beautiful Isle of Harris (where most of my inspiration comes from) and have recently undertaken a commission of 3 large felts for a fabulous Guesthouse refurbishment on the Outer Hebrides. I like to use natural wools, silks and plant fibres and enjoy collecting sheeps' wool whilst out walking on the hills of Harris. I'm currently renovating an old Victorian School on the island and plan to return to my Scottish roots. For now, the border of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire is home and where I currently have my workshop.
