I am a textile artist based in Sheffield. I work mainly with silk, velvet, cotton and organza fabrics to create colourful, textured machine embroidered textile pieces.

LIMITED EDITION HIGH QUALITY PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS OF MY WORK ARE ALSO AVAILABLE.

My designs are inspired by my Nigerian heritage and by my interest in Celtic imagery (notably the Book of Kells). I am particularly interested in the way both cultures, although seemingly very different, use spirals in their artwork and favour densely woven fabric with touches of gold and silver. Colour and texture feature heavily in both cultures.

I also make knitted woollen throws backed with rich cotton velvet.
