A Natural Life
From a young age I was fascinated by butterflies, bugs & wild flowers. In my teens, discovered silk moths. On leaving school I went into horticulture which led to the cut flower industry. Here working in wholesale, retail & eventually my own business.
My interest in botany & art took me to Michael Hickey who taught traditional pen & ink botanical illustration in Cheltenham. Later studying at Kew & eventually botany & botanical illustration at Birmingham University.
2007 was a move to North Herefordshire. All changed. I taught myself to spin & weave the silk from my moths. Now I weave quality natural yarns to make high end products.
With projects being developed & new weaving lines in production 2021 is going to be an exciting year for us here.
