I am a Land’s End based artist and textile designer specialising in hand-dyed and printed textiles, prints & hand-made cards, trading under the name ‘Solstice Moon’.  My home studio is a 200+ year old barn, but it is nevertheless well equipped to cope with the small runs of specialised screen-printed scarves that are the main part of my business.

The inspirations for my devoré scarves are developed from a range of sources, including the landscape, Celtic design & other ancient indigenous art forms. My scarves are all cut from rolls of pure white silk/viscose velvet and printed, processed, dyed and hand finished in the studio. Each scarf is dyed individually by either dip-dyeing or by using fibre reactive dyes to create two contrasting colours, known as double-dyeing. I use a variety of mixed media techniques for my prints & hand-made cards, including unusual papers, photographic, lino-cut & mono printed images, textile off-cuts, pressed leaves and flowers, printed motifs, mouldings and 'found' items.  Where possible re-cycled card blanks are used for my cards, and I will personalise cards to order.

Visits can be made to my studio by appointment any time of the year or check out the website for events I may be participating in. You can also e-mail me direct for current e-catalogues or details of shops/galleries that stock my products.
