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. My scarves and cards all carry the “Made in Cornwall” Approved Origin labels.

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.
