I studied printed surface design at High Wycombe and Chelsea schools of art before having a career as an artist in the audio-visual industry. A chance introduction to  the Embroiderers’ Guild generated my interest in textiles and I took City & Guilds Part 1 at Windsor, followed by City and Guilds part 2 at Manchester. I was then delighted to be selected to exhibit in the graduate gallery at the Knitting and Stitching show. In 2009 I   graduated from Buckinghamshire New University with a diploma in Stitched Textiles (distinction) and became a licentiate of the Society of Designer Craftsmen.
