Based in North West London, I make all of the items for sale from my studio.  Each item is completely unique and no 2 items can be replicated.  You can be sure that what you are buying is not available anywhere else.

Having been creative from a young age, I practice in a wide range of disciplines and techniques.  For the past 10 years I have been a special effects and creature costume maker for a wide variety of projects including the Harry Potter series of films, Batman, In The Night Garden and X-Men: First Class.

My main discipline is stitching and I especially love creating items using embroidery – both by machine and by hand.  Im also a very avid knitter/crocheter and am very active in the London knitting scene.

I make every effort to create everything using original and antique materials.  Some are sourced from the UK but a lot of the materials I use are from my travels around the world, especially my handmade buttons which use a variety of washi papers and fabrics from Japan.

If you have any questions about any of the items that I make, please do not hesitate to contact me.
