Living with an artwork which signifies a specific period in your life creates a constant, affirmative reminder of that memory, place, person or achievement.
— FLG

Celebrate a personal event or period of your life and family with an artwork created especially for you.

Contact me with your ideas, and if it feels like a good fit for both of us, I will guide you through the consultation and design process to create an artwork that you love and that celebrates what is important to you. I will dye, paint and stitch a truly unique artwork that will be treasured for generations to come.

There are a few guidelines within which I create commissioned artworks. Either it needs to fit within my current themes of work (that is, artworks incorporating botany, or celebrating childhood) or if it’s a new idea, it needs to be one that I am excited to try. Also, I believe that we will have the best outcome for everyone, if the style of the commissioned artwork is consistent with my current body of work - which basically means that you need to allow me some creative freedom to fit your idea within my body of work. Don’t worry; I will take you with me on the design journey so that we have an outcome we both love. There is also a minimum investment required for a commissioned artwork, as the commissioning process takes almost as creative energy whether it’s a small artwork or a large piece. The biggest think I ask of you is that you trust me. I will give your artwork everything that I have! 

Taking a workshop is a great way to learn new skills, make a new project, and connect with like-minded creatives.

Do you sell patterns?

Hold tight - they are coming! I have a pattern that I currently teach as part of my Piecing a Botanical Quilt workshop. I am working towards producing it in a format such that it can be sold and distributed independently of my workshops. Stay tuned! (and sign up to my newsletter to be the first to hear when they are available!)

Can I commission an artwork from you?

You sure can. Learn more here.

How should I care for my textile artwork?

Regularly ‘dust’ your textile artwork with a lint roller, or use your vacuum cleaner with a pantyhose pulled over the end of the vacuum cleaner hose. Do not wash or dryclean.

Do not hang your artwork in direct sunlight.

If you wish to store your artwork for a period of time, roll it around a cardboard tube or pool noodle, face out. This eliminates fold lines and crease lines. Do not fold your artwork for long term storage.

Can I collect my purchase directly from your studio?

Absolutely; if you wish to save on postage costs, get in touch and we will arrange a suitable time for collection! Or if you’re part of my school or church community, thank you so much for you’re support - I’ll refund your postage costs and pass your purchase on to you next time I see you!
