I studied textile design at Winchester School Of Art in the UK where I specialized in knitting. Following graduation I worked as a freelance textile designer. I have worked as a Design Consultant for Rowan Yarns whilst also working with Debbie Bliss. I tutor many knitting and crochet workshops across the UK offering hands on advice to knitters through teaching and demonstrations and I spend most of my time designing knit and crochet projects for the home interior. I am the author of 5 books, the most recent being Homespun Vintage and Kaleidoscope. I live in North London with my husband, two teenage children and my Staffordshire Terrier - Scramble. In my spare time I enjoy cookery, gardening and painting.
