I enjoy making my little characters on vintage cotton reels but especially when they are dark in nature which for me gives the artwork a sense of sadness and I suppose a feeling of uneasiness. I just think it has an extra edge as I never would like to do twee and a lot of the stuff around in my line of work is certainly that.

I don't know what it is about Gothic images whether they be of architecture, artworks or fashion but I absolutely love them. I am drawn to the darkness and mystery of it all and whenever I see a person dressed as a Goth I just want to home and draw or make a piece of art, I find it so inspirational.

Busy making for upcoming craft fair and I am concentrating on the cards at present which are all hand stitched or original watercolours. They are taking quite a while to complete as I keep adding more things and of course I will never be able to sale them for what they are actually worth but hey ho I still love making them.

It's been a while since I last posted but I have been busy making some new and exciting pieces for my upcoming craft fair in Manchester. I have also decided to diversify a little so have made some necklaces some of which are abstract textile pieces and some character based such as Alice in wonderland. I have also been working on more figures on vintage cotton reels and some Frida Kahlo pieces. I hope you all enjoy the work featured and I promise to write and show more of my work soon.
