hand stitched illustrations inspired by nature and folklore

"I was captivated by Julie's stitched images of childhood.. They are so direct and expressive and immediately brought back memories. I loved them; just perfect to give to little people if I can part with them! "

"I first discovered Julie's work at the 2011 Knitting and Stitching Show in Harrogate. I fell in love with it immediately and knew I had to have a piece of my own. Julie made me a gorgeous appliqué picture featuring her characters Rhian & Nog which was stitch perfect and exactly how I wanted it. Can't wait to see what she makes next!"

“Beautiful little gems. I am very attracted to all things Indian and can see the big influence of India in this work especially with the hands on, hand stitching,"feeling" the materials and stories being developed. I like the use of Kantha, using mainly natural scraps of often reclaimed fabric and dyed by Julie. I really enjoyed reading her answers making me feel the love and personal feeling that goes into her work. I love her use of colour.”
