I studied textiles at university and since finishing I have been producing hand-made lamps and hand- cut wedding stationery. I passionately believe in making my lamps both functional and unique, and my designs are influenced by the Cornish landscape and the playful imagination of my two young children.

I enjoy hunting for beautiful used fabrics to use within the lampshades and subsequently I have an abundance of material. In response to this, I have started to make ‘up-cycled’ bunting, finished off with satin ribbon to match my lampshade designs.
