Jean Marsden

I learned to make dolls clothes with my mother and soon started to make my own clothes with the sewing machine. I stared to embroider while in my teens and did the 4 year course of City and Guilds Embroidery in the 1990s.

I am most interested in keeping alive traditional embroidery and stitches.

My inspirations come from the natural world and architecture.
