ABOUT

I make hand sewn lampshades from my home studio in Warwick. A love of colour and beautiful products inspire and motivate me. Initially I trained as a weaver and dyer and am still influenced by the skills I learned. I am designing my own collection of lampshades that feature my hand woven fabrics which I weave on my 8 shaft table loom. 

As a textile designer I am drawn to colour and pattern and believe that they make a dramatic influence in our daily lives. Surrounding yourself with beautiful, mood boosting colours makes your home feel like a true sanctuary. I have created products that elevate the ambiance of a room.

I work and collaborate with interior designers and clients to craft bespoke lampshades to their requirements and specific styles whilst also making my own products that feature high quality silks, cottons and linens. You can see some of the projects I have worked on in the gallery.
