In 1979 I qualified as a surface pattern designer. In 2008 I graduated with a First Class BA Hons in Contemporary Applied Arts as a textile designer.

Since graduating I have established a successful business in Caldbeck in the English Lake District. Hesta Scene acts as my studio, and gift shop/gallery.

Birds have played a big part in my upbringing, but only in recent times have I fully appreciated their beauty and variety. The beautiful colours and patterns on the green woodpecker provided me with the inspiration to design a collection of knitted accessories.

Bird prints from my watercolour paintings, greeting cards and porcelain brooches compliment this collection.

Eleven other garden birds such as the robin, goldfinch and wren provided further inspiration for the 2018/19 collection.
