About me

I’m a little bit crazy and love great design. I also have an amazing love affair with COLOUR. It literally makes my heart sing! In the real world I am a graphic designer, specialising in designing books and the occasional magazine for UK & international clients. For recreation I have always turned to crafts, from sewing to knitting and making jewellery, painting, photography … you name it, I’ve tried it.

In the fashion world I am “plus size”. Yes, siree, I’ve got curves and I’m not afraid to use ’em! I love that by sewing I can make unique clothes that I would never find in any shop, and make them so they actually fit me. What a revolutionary thought! After all, why shouldn’t everyone rock their own personal style, regardless of size?

Now a contented 40-something, I divide my time between proper work (designing) and sewing/crafting, whiling away the hours in a brilliant ‘shed’ at the bottom of my garden, where I can create mess to my hearts content!  I love books, design, crafting, reading, shoes, kitties and very dark organic chocolate (not necessarily in that order). Oh, and my bloke, who encourages me every day to live my dreams and take time to jump in puddles, and happens to be the most AMAZING (and occasionally annoying) man in the world.

I live in a tiny cottage at the edge of the Chiltern Hills.

One thought on “About me

  1. I found you via your article for the Curvy Sewing Collective and I’ve loved reading your blog and especially the being unafraid part. I too am and probably always will be a curvy girl with a love of colour, real colour and I’m getting back into sewing after a 12 year break. I look forward to seeing what you make and I already know you are going to inspire me, so thank you for that Karen x
