  • About this artist
  • Designer and maker of art dolls in textiles and mixed media. I trained in fashion / texiles and have been working with my own fashion brand for many years, My career started as a member of the Dove Centre in Butleigh with a workshop in Crispin Hall, Street in 1976 when it was first re-opened. I have since spent 40 years working in London and recently moved back to Glastonbury in 2016.
    I now work with textiles making art cloth dolls which I sell online as well as teaching classes in Glastonbury. I also sell patterns and kits and am the author of 3 books published by Search Press – ‘Introduction to making Cloth Dolls’, ‘Making Fantasy Cloth Dolls’, ‘How to make Cloth Dolls’. I have been featured in specialist embroidery magazines over the years and have an article to be published by Maggie Gray’s ‘WOW book in 2021. My dolls are themed on fantastical beings – Fairies, witches, mermaids and elfin creatures. Most figures are between 14″ and 18″ tall. They are made with all sorts of fabrics and techniques – paint, embroidery, wires, silks, dyed cottons and lots more.
