I trained as a Children's Bereavement Volunteer officer in 2006, which led on to me starting my Bespoke Cloth Keepsake Service. These are wondefully emotive, tactile cushions, created out of the treasured clothes of a loved one, with memories you hold dear.

I have facilitated many 'Emotions/Grief & Art' Workshops since 1999 and the last one was June 2021.


I qualified as an Advanced CGRS in 2020 and love delivering the Helping Children With Loss programme.


I love creating my own art and the last few exhibitions have been a wonderful exploration of my fascination with line, movement, memory and sometimes loss.

  • BA Hons Design Crafts
