I am writer and consultant, having recently moved from rural Somerset to Liverpool. My academic background is in theology, church history, and education. I use weaving, felt and linocut printing to make art. I am interested in rare breed sheep, vintage textiles, and domestic social history. I think the Singer hand-crank sewing machine and the Series I Land Rover are design classics. I take an informed interest in rural and farming issues, and am committed to supporting local food producers and businesses. I also like to cook, eat, drink, grow some vegetables, listen to the radio, knit, and read whodunits.
