Who we are

Hi my name is Gemma and I’m an embroidery artist based in East Anglia. I grew up on the beautiful Suffolk Coast and now live in the countryside on the Essex/Cambridgeshire border where I design and make original and contemporary embroidery from my home studio.

Through my observational illustrations of items we often forget, such as worn-out trainers, favourite biscuits with Granny, a leaf found on a trip to the park or fishing at the beach, I hope to recall the associated memories, stories and conversations these items can invoke in you, the viewer.  

I use stitched line through embroidery to portray these items’ individual characteristics and beauty to retell these stories. Each illustration is drawn by using free motion machine embroidery with added hand embroidery details displayed in a wooden embroidery hoop. Each of my embroideries is a unique one-off, beautifully made with attention to detail, ready to be displayed in your home.

All of my artwork is made using natural materials. All my embroidery hoops are made in the UK using FSC solid beech wood and each hoop is carefully packaged in acid free tissue paper and sent in a cardboard box with paper bubble wrap for protection, all packaging is recyclable.
