About Me

I am a textile artist passionate about redefining what craft means in a contemporary setting. Slowing down and making things by hand, using ethically sourced yarns, and empowering handmade and DIY as a resistance to consumerism and slave labour. Through my practice I want to contribute to the changing narrative of craft as a form of public interaction and collaboration, rather than a tool limited to the domestic woman's sphere.

Sun & Flower Studios

Sun & Flower Studios is a resistant force against the empire of wasteful, poor-quality fashion made in unethical conditions. Inspired by the 'buy once, buy well' movement, I strive to make items that are long-lasting, ethically sourced, and really bloomin' cute. Whether it's an adorable stegosaurus coat for your favourite doggo, or lovingly handcrafted crochet string bags to do your weekly shop in, each item is underscored by the belief that things should be useful, made with love, and as pretty as humanly possible. It also means sharing my love of crochet with others in friendly, supportive, and non-judgemental classes.
