Embossed copper, textile art and prints - all inspired by English folklore and the magic and mystery of the English countryside!
Using a vintage hand-cranked Singer sewing machine, I combine lustrous silks with real copper to create pieces that echo medieval illuminated manuscripts, as well as the early 20th century Arts and Crafts movement. I supply a mixture of made-to-order, personalised, and ready-made pieces, and I aim to dispatch personalised orders within 24 hours of ordering. I am also open to custom orders - let me know your idea and Id love to work with you to create a design!
Like so many people, when the pandemic hit I was forced to stop rushing around, and actually got a chance to sit and think about where I wanted to be. The timing finally felt right for me to combine my two passions - art and history - to create something I feel proud of every day. And so was born Amongst the Gorse, where I draw upon my knowledge and skills as an artist and combine it with English folklore, Englands forgotten history, and even throw in the odd creepy folk song to boot!
