Welcome to my blog – Figure of eight!

This has been in planning for months and I am so pleased to be up and running.

Over the last two or three years I have read so many lovely things about my work and looked at pictures of projects made from my books from all over the world and I am really looking forward to connecting up with some of you.

Why Figure of eight? It really stems from an exhibition I had a couple of years ago based on the idea of what goes around comes around. The exhibition consisted of fabric and paper pieces all made using recycled, found and reclaimed materials. Although not all my work is based on up-cycling I do love being able to transform something that was destined for the recycling bin into an item that is useful, usable or purely an object of beauty. The name stuck and I like it! I have been working on ideas for my header. Thought I might have some hand printing then changed my mind at the last minute.

I want to share exciting new projects that I am working on, ideas and things that inspire me and a bit about our move from London to a new life down here on the beautiful Kent coast. Hope you will join me!
