My blog is about the trials and tribulations of setting up my own teeny tiny business and trying to grow it without killing something vital in the process! (no pesticides….) I am passionate about textiles and have eclectic tastes, and although I have a full time job and a family, I aim to blog at least weekly with updates on developments in my cushion related world, you are very welcome to join me, or comment, any advice appreciated

I use a variety of media including drawing, watercolour, photography textile prints and CAD to create a series of images that evoke the emotions and colours of the original idea.
This work has evolved from my original skills in applique and quilting and my eclectic interest in natural history, anthropology, culture, symbolism, psychology and textile prints, colour, light and texture.
