In 2001 I graduated from Winchester School of Art, England, with a degree in textile art. It is here I learnt the amazing possibilities of textiles.
I was born in West Sussex England, I have lived in Baltimore USA ( I studied at MICA) and now I call Melbourne Australia home.
My Work throughout my studies was very much fine art based, using craft and textile tecniques to convay a main concept.
I have exhibited in London and other parts of England but I always felt I was left a little empty from my work……. This is until I made my first doll. I was making a friend, a secret keeper and a protector something which was going to be truely cherished and loved. And that fills me with utter joy!
I have a young daughter and understand the bond that children can form with their toys……….but I also understand the importance a special doll can hold to a grown adult 🙂
I love that my creations are enjoyed by such a wide audience and that hopefully my dolls will be passed through generations ❤
