Having studied textiles at Central St Martin’s I then completed a post-graduate MA in woven textiles at the Royal College of Art. Then after several years of working in the commercial textiles and furniture industry I was keen to get back and do something more handmade. The Bombus story began in 2003 amid discarded maps long-forgotten books and antique atlases. Inspired by the vintage papers I developed a unique range of bespoke map gifts using the book and maps as my cloth. More recently and always keeping the influence of textiles close to hand I have moved on to develop a more fine art range of wooden patchwork collages presented here. I have a small team in our beautiful rural studio who assist in the hand making of the pieces.
