Tina Berning was one of the first artists I truly fell in love with back when I was studying my A-Levels. I came across her book called '100 Girls on Cheap Paper', which was a series of illustrations she created each day of women on odd bits of paper. Each portrait was created using mainly watercolours in simple bold lines portraying these beautiful women.

Welcome to my new blog where I want to show you all my work, my processes, my ideas, artists I love, products and books I'm using, etc. etc. etc.
I thought I'd start the blog at my starting point in my journey into the world of embroidery and illustration.
One of the first (and probably the best) stitched pieces I created was this portrait of Jessica Stam, a combination of a hand embroidered face and everything else machine stitched. This year I'm hoping to create work more work that can emulate this and to expand my range. I hope you stick around for the ride.
