ABOUT ME

Hello!

I’m Vicky, I’m a wife, mum and Textile Artist and I love being creative, I studied a Textiles Degree at Winchester School of Art and have recently finished my City and Guilds in Machine Embroidery which was an absolute joy to do and has helped inspire my more recent work – combining it with hand embroidery techniques to enhance it. I enjoy dyeing and printing my own fabrics to create interesting backgrounds, blending colour washes, printing and mark making to create unique pieces of art to stitch onto. I work from my home studio in Surrey which has provided me with a rich source of inspiration from nature – from the colours and texture of bark to the serenity and beauty in the local landscapes.

I am a great believer that creativity can benefit everyone – it is food for our soul and the best kind of therapy, which is why as well as developing my own work I want to run workshops to give others the chance to experience this too.
