Bespoke artwork and commissions

An internationally acclaimed embroidery artist, Helen lives and works in the medieval market town of Bury St Edmunds, England.  This site will give you a flavour of her work, where to see exhibitions and how best to learn and understand her techniques.

Helen's artworks are executed in pure silk and precious metal threads, with the addition of other natural fibres and/or semi precious stones.  Her techniques are contemporary interpretations of ancient Anglo Saxon concepts and stitches.  Contact her direct for commissions, etc.
