Hello and a warm welcome.

My name is Louise and I’m a textile artist lucky enough to be living in lovely Cornwall. I’m inspired by everything! People, scenery, walks in the mist, colours & textures……..all the beautiful things that surround me.

I’m originally from Nottingham and after graduating with a B.A.Hons. Degree in fashion and textiles have worked freelance, designing upholstery fabric, wallpaper, cards and wrapping paper. My real passion though has always been textiles - sewing, making and creating & for the past few years I have supplied several galleries across Devon and Cornwall with appliqued linen items such as pouches, purses and brooches.

I create original pieces of work in my studio, sometimes using just fabric and stitch and sometimes using lino prints that I’ve designed and printed onto linen. I then layer on other fabrics & add all of the detail by hand and occasionally machine, to create a truly unique piece of work.

I hope you enjoy your visit here and feel inspired by what you see.
