I came across textile art by coincidence.
3 years ago, I started sewing for my first Grandchild and after 20 baby outfits I became a little bored and wanted to try something else.
Since then I have been making textile wall hangings, mostly inspired by living on the beautiful Isle of Portland, and textile vessels.
In my former life, I was a social worker and a Psychotherapist.
I used to work with creative media with my clients and experience now that it makes me happy too.
If possible, I try to work with recycled material and you can find me looking for interesting material on car boot sales and in charity shops.
I come originally from Germany, have a lovely husband, 3 daughters, 1 son and 2 border collies.
