Some of my earliest childhood memories are of encounters with dogs and throughout life I am continually in awe of how they connect with us to create wonderful and memorable friendships. Through my work it is my wish to make tangible memories of these friendships that can be treasured for a lifetime. 

Home is not far from Bath in Somerset and you can usually find me surrounded by bundles of sheep fleece working on my latest needle felt commission, or I might be out in the local woods walking with my dog Willow.  

I enjoy being outside and near to nature, observing tiny details of our natural world that are easily overlooked.  I like to bring this quality to my work, and look for the detail that gives each dog I make such distinct expression and character.
