Sarah's characters start life as doodles and drawings which are then given colourful outfits and plumage using applique and free-machine embroidery. Sarah is a hoarder of buttons and fabrics (no scrap too small) and can spend hours (really!) hunting out just the right tiny piece for a particular detail.
Much of her inspiration comes from my home in Cumbria the home of the lake district, whether this is whilst on a walk in the lakes or from her shed window whilst at my sewing machine.
Many of her images have been developed into a range of embroidered and printed fabric designs using the magic of photoshop, gallons of tea and much frustration.
