A love of splashing around in nature took me on a university and career path in marine biology, after which I worked in wildlife conservation and education in island locations around the world.
But my artistic streak comes from a lifetime of dabbling in art. I’ve always have a set of paints (or three), a sketch pad and pencils close to hand for when inspiration calls.
It wasn’t until recently though I started to take my creative side seriously. Especially when I was introduced to needle felting seven years ago.
AND. I. LOVED IT.
Since launching my business in 2013 I’ve taught thousands of students in person and online.
And when I see my students flourish, often returning to learn from me again and again I’m so proud to see them develop their own style. Some have even gone on to teach and build their own businesses with my help.
I live in the UK on the edge of Bristol, with the city in one direction and the beauiful Cotswold countryside to the other.
It’s out in nature where you’ll find me at my happiest, surrounded by wildlife, walking in ancient woodlands, or further afield at the windswept coast -
But always with my favourite walking companions, my dog Willow and partner Ben.
I'm so thrilled that you've chosen to share this little part of the internet with me.
I just know that we're going to have a great time together "needle felting across our virtual world" and I can't wait to see how well you do.
