I have always loved creating beautiful things, and when arthritis forced me to stop working as an upholsterer, I fell in love with weaving. Using top quality materials, the shawls, scarves, baby wraps, and smaller household items created are heirloom quality that will retain their beauty for generations. Each piece is produced, quite literally, thread by thread on a 16 shaft loom, which gives me the scope for more complicated work and even more beautiful designs.

I live in a 14th-century manor in Anjou, a stunning region in western France, the beauty of which inspires me and my designs. My workroom is onsite and makes it easy for me to create whenever the inspiration strikes.
