I started making embroideries in 2013 when I didn’t have much money and needed a birthday present for my housemate. So I picked up a needle, thread, some fabric and I started making something. Since then, I’ve had an overwhelming response to my embroideries, and I’ve begun making them regularly for my friends and family. I love how natural and relaxing embroidery feels to me, and I’m really excited to keep expanding my practice.

In 2014, my Mum, having seen the things I’d made, requested that I recreate the Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh for her. It was intimidating at first, as that is one of my favourite artists and one of my favourite paintings. But I started slowly, gathering my materials, mapping out what I was going to include, and carefully drawing the painting onto the fabric. Over the next month, I spent roughly 60 hours lovingly recreating the painting bit by bit, and trying to include as much detail as possible.

I am currently working on an embroidery for my sister, and then I will be creating things of my own design to sell in the future.
