Fundamentally, I am moving in the direction of precious, luxurious handcrafted sensory products for your holistic lifestyle.

I’m now using the ‘Mandala’ very much in my work, loosely meaning ‘circle’. It’s a geometric device used as an aid to meditation, & can be seen as a diagram of a miniature, complete universe. I’ve been working intuitively with this motif, carving my own stamps & printing them onto hand dyed silk for my new lined scarves (£45), silk lavender filled eye pillows,(£16.50) & Gold Collection intention artworks, (£16.50) The Gold I use can be in foiling, paint or thread form .I also have a range of Mandala painted stones, (£6).

My eye pillows are sort of elongated lavender bag to go over closed eyes, whilst relaxing, post yoga class, during meditation or sound bath.

I take wholesale orders from yoga studios, sound bath practitioners, therapists, retreat leaders etc., the likes of Triyoga (Camden, Soho and Chelsea, London),Breeze Yoga, Karma Studios, Rhythm of Beauty & Yogastuff, Soundsebastien and Sophie Bashford’s Retreat as gifts.  My range of colours are: angelic blue, love pink, peace purple, Spring green, ancient gold. (£16.50,2 for £32; 3 for £45).

I also have a range of cotton digitally printed eye pillows, inspired by sacred geometry and crystal colours. They have a flap opening, instead of Velcro, with an inner bag. Please see social media pages above, for images. (£10)

Since graduating in Textiles in `85, I`ve worked freelance in Print Design for dress fabrics, selling abroad and in the UK, through agencies.

My passion for working with pattern and colour has more recently lead me to create a finished product: the scarf. It provides a wonderful blank canvas for my designs, literally, as the silk is stretched on a frame. I love the spontaneity of painting freehand directly onto the scarf, the designs often originating from geometric or plant forms.The colours are very important to me, and I think they`re the first thing that attracts the eye. They are often almost `Vintage`, even brighter colours having a soft edge to them. I dye and redye, in order to achieve the colour I want.

I work from my home in Kent, England, and I sell my work at Craft Fairs, and some Galleries.Prices range from £15 (square scarf), through £25 (long scarf), £39 (circular scarf and beaded long scarf) & £42 & £60 (lined scarves, two sizes).

As all silk is hand dyed, some unevenness may occur. The scarves are all handwashable in cold water, and can be scrunched up for a crinkly effect, or cool ironed, if required.
