Textile pieces


I am a textile artist based in the Walkley area of Sheffield. I work mainly with silk, velvet, cotton and organza fabrics to create colourful, textured machine embroidered textile pieces. I also make knitted woollen throws backed with rich cotton velvet and handmade embroidered greetings cards. Limited edition prints of my work are available.

You can browse through the images above to see more examples of my textiles, or find out more about my working process here.

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.
