I had an idea to make a cheese plant, this was inspired by seeing the cheese plant when doing Yoga With Adriene. I didn’t want a cheese plant that would grow too big or might result in soil spilling onto the carpet, so decided that a mini one would be ideal.
My favourite fabric at present is satin, I love how the light catches it and used it recently for the Bird and Flowers Cushion. The cushion featured leaves and so I can recognise the idea flow through these projects.
Following this commission project I made a bookmark, a pretty lady emerged, and then an eye mask.
So botanics were a theme flowing, or should I say ‘growing’ through my work, largely this was inspired by Botanica – Encyclopedia of Inspiration by Uppercase Magazine, a book I love. My garden is also a huge source of inspiration and vital to my creative process.
Here’s the cheese plant creation process in a one minute video. Including a quick animation that I was inspired to make. This quickly shows the steps to creating the miniature cheese plant…
This video and my growing collection of art videos can be seen on my YouTube channel.
I’m really pleased with this outcome and eager to see where this leads on to, I have some ideas but not ready to share them just yet.

Thanks so much for being here. If you know someone who would enjoy seeing my work and maybe they like creating too, then please share this with them.
