Bring colour into your life; be Vibrant, Bold &


After a break during 2020 I am slowly returning to my creative pursuits.

Over the next few months I'll be creating a new and exciting range of Shibori DIY kits suitable for all levels of experience. Please check into my 'Classes & Workshops' page for more info. You can also register your interest or send me suggestions through my 'Contact' page.

I'll also be developing new designs for my fabrics and paper products which I'll be selling online and at selected retail venues.

During 2021, a brand new range of fashion and home decor items is also on the horizon.

I hope you'll stay tuned for these exciting developments.

I'm passionate about creating vibrant, bold, and beautiful textiles and papers full of colour, texture, pattern, depth and complexity. My favourite techniques include Shibori, the Japanese art of shaped resist dyeing; printing using handmade stamps, stencils and found objects, and digital image manipulation and image creation.

I love sharing with others – adults and children – and teaching them what I know so they can explore their own creativity.
