Embroidered prints, notebooks, greeting cards and more, created from watercolour paintings and machine embroidery inspired by the Cornish countryside.
I am a Cornwall based textile artist specialising in textile products, inspired from the flora and fauna of the beautiful countryside that surrounds me. Flowers have always played an important part within my work. I find drawing and painting them gives you that freedom of line and colour – no flower is ever the same.
I feel more at one with nature and it makes you appreciate our environment and where we live more, which is something that is so important nowadays. I try and incorporate flowers that are synonymous with Cornwall so there is a deeper connection in my work and has that personal touch.
I use a combination of traditional and digital techniques to create my work. I use original watercolour paintings that are then enhanced digitally to be able to effectively reproduce the designs across a multitude of products, whether that be fabric based products or paper based products. Machine embroidery is also used to add that extra tactile element.
