I have been making embroidery works for a number of years and am a self-taught needlewoman, developing my own style of work with great attention to detail. My embroidery works are stitched using a basic sewing machine as a drawing tool. Influences include early painting and craft. Over time my embroidery pieces have become well known, with their distinctive tiny faces motifs, use of pattern and expressive mood. These small, often miniature works, are now in collections worldwide.

Due to various reasons I took an extended break from stitching - but I have recently decided to return to embroidery - concentrating on smaller, miniature-scaled works.

If you are interested in purchasing an embroidery work, specifically an angel-inspired work similar to the ones below, I now have a waiting list open. (I may need to close the list when busy). Please email me (ccullis at gmail dot com) to request being on the embroidery list. I can let you know more details such as waiting time and price.

I will also be adding new embroidery works to my shop - these pieces can be previewed here on my blog and over at Instagram - they will be available at a given time and cannot be reserved.
