I am delighted to have won 'Best Newcomer' at BCTF online in June which was awarded by Heart Gallery in Hebden Bridge. I'm really excited to be back exhibiting my homeware, stationery and cards.
After completing a Fine Art Degree at Staffordshire University I set up May I Design. Using a domestic sewing machine I create free motion machine embroidered designs which are then printed onto stationery and homewares.
Everyday objects such as wellies, beer bottles and front doors (I’m a little bit obsessed with doors) are turned into quirky motifs. Nothing is too mundane for me to create a happy, stitched design.
I also run workshops encouraging others to fall in love with the wonderful, wobbly lines created by this sewing technique.
