Amongst the Gorse


Like so many people, when the pandemic hit I was forced to stop rushing around, and actually got a chance to sit and think about where I wanted to be. The timing finally felt right for me to combine my two passions - art and history - to create something I feel proud of every day. And so was born Amongst the Gorse, where I draw upon my knowledge and skills as an artist and combine it with folklore, England's forgotten history, and even throw in the odd creepy folk song to boot!

My Creations...

Using a vintage hand-cranked Singer sewing machine, I combine lustrous silks with real copper to create pieces that echo medieval illuminated manuscripts, as well as the early 20th century Arts and Crafts movement. I supply a mixture of made-to-order, personalised, and ready-made pieces, and I aim to dispatch personalised orders within 24 hours of ordering. I am also open to custom orders - let me know your idea and I'd love to work with you to create a design!
