What do you love most about crochet? Oh wow, there are so many things to love about crochet, including everything from the elegant simplicity of the basic stitches to snuggling up in those cosy blankets you have made for yourself. The thing that has me truly passionate about crochet is the way it allows me to explore and experiment with beautiful colours which, as you know, is another huge passion of mine.


Did you always dream of being an artist/designer maker when you were growing up? I have been creative all my life and some of my earliest memories are of painting at nursery school and crocheting in the kitchen with my Mam at around five years old.


Throughout school I was always 64 | ukhandmade | Winter 2011


drawn to the more creative subjects; I loved art classes where I got to try my hand at everything from graphic design to pottery and home economics classes were a great introduction to fabric and embroidery. For a long time I had ideas of being a schoolteacher until one of my schoolteachers actually talked me out of it! It wasn't till then that I began to consider creative options for a career.


On leaving school and going to Art College I had grand ideas of being an illustrator and loved the idea of illustrating children’s books. However, at college I was introduced to everything from fine art to product design and the field that I gravitated to most was textile design. From there I studied Printed textiles for my degree and went straight into freelance designing with a lovely studio where I designed women's wear, children's wear and home collections for international commercial markets.
