My embroidering origins

My grandmother taught me to embroider when I was a child. Following instructions though is just not me so cross-stitching was never going to be my path. When I embroider it’s the freestyle, expressive, personal aspect that I love.

A wet-felter?

I am not sure if I am a wet-felter (not sure that is a word) who embroiders or an embroiderer who wet-felts… Whichever it is I think they marry well together and bring my pictures to life. 

Texture and Detail

I use silk and wool to create my flowers, trees and sheep. I have thousands of embroidery threads but now and again I’m lucky enough to find a stash of authentic Anchor or DMC threads in charity shops.
