Hi!  Thanks for visiting my page.

I've been doing embroidery, weaving, quilting, appliqué and beading, among other things, as hobbies for a few decades, after beginning with cross stitch at the age of six.

Another interest that I have stoked over the years is that of history, from Antiquity to the Medieval era. When I went up to Oxford at 18 to study Literae Humaniores (Latin, Ancient Greek, Ancient History, Philosophy and Archaeology - in a nutshell), my horizons expanded. I joined university societies such as the Oxford Arthurian Society and Tolkien Society, celebrating a shared love of myth and legend. We drank mulled wine dipped from a cauldron, clambered up Bronze Age earthworks to see in the dawn on May Morning, squeezed into Wayland's Smithy in the pre-dawn darkness and sang songs. Arthur, the Once and Future King, became a lifetime companion.

Now, after emigrating to the USA with my American husband, I am enjoying bringing my own interpretation of historical embroidery techniques to modern embroidered art with a historical feel. 

What you can expect to see coming up in the future

I'm currently working on a sequence of Norse gods and goddesses, which will be made into good quality paper prints once the project is sufficiently advanced.  Loki has been completed and Odin is currently underway.

You can also expect to see pieces inspired by Medieval illuminated manuscripts and Arthurian legend as well as by more modern storytellers such as JRR Tolkien.
