Current and Forthcoming Exhibitions, Events, Press and Workshops

Maudie’s House, for the Embroiderer’s Guild members’ ‘Home’ Exhibition


I am selling work in my shop on this site and donating 10% of all sales to our local Nourish Community Foodbank. I am also contributing to the great Artist Support Pledge on social media with 10 % of those sales also going to Nourish.

I was delighted to be shortlisted to the second round of judging for the prestigious Vlieseline Fine Art Textiles Award this year with ‘Stay at Home’.

I’m pleased to have had a piece ‘Bird 2’ selected for the Swiss Fiber Art Collective’s exhibition ‘ Un/framed – selected hoop art’ which is exhibiting in the Kunstraum Winterthur from 3- 10 October 2020 and at the Nadelwelt Friedrichschafen in Germany from 6 November.

I was delighted to have an original design selected from a very large and impressive field of artists for the ‘Secret 7’ exhibition at the Now Gallery in London from 14 October – 1 November 2020. The proceeds raised go to the wonderful Choose Love charity.

I’m completely thrilled and excited to announce my solo exhibition ‘Well Travelled’ at the Ruthin Craft Centre, Wales dates TBC – watch this space!

The exhibition will focus on work connecting travel and identity and coincides with the publication of my fourth title for Batsford Books called ‘Textile Travels’ in October 2020.
