I started drawing and sewing when I was a small child. I studied needlework, embroidery, art and technical drawing at school and then trained in art and fashion studios where everything was drawn and made by hand. I started to make patterns for clothes as a teenager because I could not find patterns for clothes that I wanted to wear, People liked my clothes and asked me to design and make clothes for them and draw pictures as well, and so my practice began. The stencil cards were originally individually airbrushed. The inks are now obsolete so I scanned the designs and print them myself using archival inks and fine art paper. The giclée prints are printed for me by a Fine Art Trade Guild print company from my own scans. I design, make the patterns and hand sew all the clothes and accessories. Currently I work from a home base.
