I graduated from Winchester school of Art in Textiles BA (Hons)
specialising initially in knitwear in my final year but found my true
calling working with embroidery. After graduating I gained practical
experience working with an embroidery firm for a year which was a real eye
opener and after that year I ventured out with a group of friends with our
portfolios under the banner of Chrysalis Design to Como, New York and
Paris to sell our textiles and to our amazement we did! A few years
later I moved to Zürich as my husband is Swiss and I continued with
Chrysalis Design focussing solely on embroidery.
exhibited in Paris and successfully sold internationally to Designers and
High street fashion firms alike.
I then started producing textile
collections for women and childrenswear with 2 wonderful studios, one in New
York, Group Four Design Studio Ltd. and one in Como, Musticstyle who
represented me for many years.
After 19 years of textile designing I
was drawn to making patches under the Twinkles brand as I wanted to
produce something fun and cute for children ( and adults alike!). My
patches encompass my love of colour, fabric and textiles. I came up
with Twinkles as I wanted a name which was a bit cheeky like our cat, so I
use him for my logo. Together with my husband we hope you enjoy our
patches and we hope to be spreading lots of twinkles!
