About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Needle work designer
Location York, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I have had a passion for arts and crafts since early childhood. After studying graphic design at Derby University I was employed as a designer for a screen printing company. Two years later I started working as a needlework designer for DMC. I had found something I really enjoyed and wanted to develop further. In 2003 I became a freelance needlework designer. Apart from my 2 children, nothing gives me a greater sense of pride than seeing someone stitching one of my designs. I feel truely priviliged to be working doing something I thoroughly love. I currently contribute to the following magazines: cross stitch crazy, cross stitch gold, the world of cross stitching, cross stitch card shop, cross stitcher and cross stitch collection.
