My tutor said I was a curious artist…
I am influenced by nature’s flora and fauna, from its birth in spring to its decay in autumn – so many colours and textures. I also like to recycle and up-cycle wherever possible. I enjoy all Fine Art and Art & Crafts.

Spinning wheels and rare breed yarn
my own spinning…
I currently own 3 working spinning wheels, a further one requires some attention (came free with a 1960s spinning stool), and very small delicate one which was taken apart for packing purposes bought in an antique shop In Thiers, France a few years ago.READ MORE
I came across my favourite yarn by reading an article about knitting in the Guardian newspaper in 2011. The article detailed a hat pattern using wool from Colinette Yarns in mid Powys. I loved the look of the yarn, bought a skein, and made the hat!READ MORE
‘Elizabeth’, my first spinning wheel, is now temporarily retired and looked wonderful at Christmas time with the fairy lights around the wheel. I can use this wheel to teach students to spin wool – contact me for more details.READ MORE

HAPPY YARN LOVERS
Beautifully soft, unique yarn with blended rich colours. A pleasure to work with.
I fell in love with this jumper whilst Kathryn was knitting it…I loved the colour combination. Once it was finished, I tried it on and didn’t know what to say. It fitted me perfectly – I didn’t want to take it off.
The jumper is warm and soft to wear; it will keep me toasty warm in winter.
