I started life as Charlotte Jenkins, many moons ago.
Over the years I have worked as a town planner, run my own catering business and been a teaching assistant. Now I have aspirations of being a textile artist!
I have always loved art and sewing, but my eyes were opened to the possibilities of machine embroidery after visiting a textile exhibition full of bright wall hangings when I was 12. It took me a mere 35 years to enrol onto a machine embroidery course and hone my techniques.
My textile pictures are created by machine and hand stitching, often onto hand printed fabric. I enjoy experimenting with rust, indigo and eco printing and creating unconventional combinations of texture and colour.
I exhibit regularly and am a member of the following groups:
Ochre Print Studio (Guildford)
Textiles on Tuesdays
Oxshott Art &Crafts Society
