mediums, but has found her home working with textiles.
Her process involves free motion embroidery (drawing
with a sewing machine) The immediacy and naïve line
allows her to easily express social and emotional
issues. She was awarded a Scholarship with the
Embroiders Guild in 2019, where she chose to
represent rural gentrification and the effects this has on
the poorer members of our society, and has coined the
phrase ‘Stitchavism’ to express her confrontational
style of expression.

inform in the public sector. She has exhibited nationally
and internationally and continues to create both surface
designs and 3d textile art alongside her teaching.
She has been involved in education since 2007, in
various guises, and is passionate about making all
students feel able to succeed and always looking at
ways to raise confidence in expression and
