Originally from Stoke on Trent I have lived in Hartlepool for 25 years, and have grown to love the northern coastline. With dogs as my companions, daily walks through the wild, raw open spaces of the North East coastline are my inspiration
I have degrees in both ceramics and textiles, I taught fashion and textiles at The Northern School of Art for 15 years. I have always continued with my own work which has taken many forms over the years! Thus Naughty Dog was born, initially crafting custom-made textiles, furnishings and designs. But as the seasons shifted, so did my ideas expanding to artworks, sculpture and paintings.
For many people, the relationship between a human being and a dog is a special one, essentially man’s best friend. It is a relationship which brings contentment, reward and happiness. To celebrate that special bond, I have developed exclusive products which are often commissioned for specific dogs and pets, presenting the owner with the feeling that they have something special and to be treasured.
