I'm Sue, a self-taught textile and mixed media artist, and a compulsive embroiderer. Once the Head of a busy English Department at an independent secondary school, l am now relishing the opportunities of retirement.

The natural world is a huge source of inspiration - especially trees and flowers - as are literature, and vintage treasures. I sew entirely by hand, and love to incorporate paper and stamps into my work. I also make brooches.

I’m delighted you've dropped by - do stay and take a look at my gallery of past work, or read my blog. I hope you'll like what you see, and come by again soon.
