I live in North London with my partner and our two young children. I run my small business, Excell Quilt Co, from my home studio in our garden where I design and make a range of modern quilted textile art and home goods, inspired by the natural world.
When my little ones were babies, I struggled with post natal depression, I wanted to find a mindful hobby that could help, so I purchased a sewing machine and began watching YouTube tutorials. It sparked creativity within me that I never knew I had, and I haven’t stopped sewing since.
I made a quilt for my son and just loved the process of piecing and constructing it. It was from here that I knew it was was something I wanted to make more of and see where this new passion could take me. I love sewing and quilting today as much as I did then. Being able to share my work with others is a dream.
I started creating landscape quilts during the 2020 lockdown. They were likely influenced by an urge to go outdoors and see the world while we were stuck indoors for weeks on end. I like to reference places I’ve travelled to, or that are on my wish list. I’m always yearning to escape to nature so I feel like that comes through in my style.
