I have lived in Suffolk for 20 years and now have a large black Labrador for company to go for long walks with in the beautiful countryside. I like to spend my time walking or gardening as this is a favourite hobby of mine and with a large plot to tend it is just as well. London or Cambridge are cities I visit as often as I can and I love to travel.
I have a degree in Printed and Woven Textiles and as well as teaching art I have worked as a freelance designer for many years for the retail trade and card companies.
For the past twenty years I have concentrated on designs for the needlework market but I now work mainly for the cross stitch market, providing designs and charts for most of the needlework magazines. I have written four books for David and Charles: 101 Weekend Cross Stitch Gifts, Travel the World in Cross Stitch, Oriental Cross Stitch and Fantasy Cross Stitch as well as contributing to ten more.
