My Story

I created Quiet Thunder back in 2018 as an outlet for my creativity and a celebration of all that is beautiful in the World.

It focuses on the beauty of the natural world, words which resonate and inspire, celestial wonders, the Heavens and anything which gets the grey matter moving, including the odd bit of astro physics! 

I have exhibited my artwork internationally, and more closer to home, last year, at Touchstones Gallery in Rochdale. My artwork has also been featured in ‘Country Living’ magazine.
I have taught art and run workshops for over thirty years - from three year olds up to art training for teachers and reminiscence projects for our older generation.
I was also one of four North West Artists to participate in an International Artists Exchange to America, working with artists and educators in Early Years Settings.
My degree is in fine art embroidered textiles but in 2009 I attended a short course in silversmithing and made a silver ring upon which I stamped the names of my children. I love making personalised pieces of jewellery and is intrigued by the stories my customers share.

Quiet Thunder encompasess a range of things that I design and make including:

original art work, paintings, drawings, fine art prints, photography, jewellery, enamel mugs and mixed media pieces.

The humble tee shirt is also a staple of the range, always made from organic cotton and either hand stitched, hand painted or printed. The first tee shirt that I designed was the Mind Over Matter one - which continues to be a reminder about the importance of positive thoughts.

Why should you be proud to buy and wear organic cotton?

  • Environmentally friendly – production uses less energy, releases fewer greenhouse gases and uses less water
  • Premium quality – strong and robust, hypoallergenic and better for the skin
  • Fair working conditions – workers who create GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified cotton products are paid a fair living wage

In a world of fast fashion we need to consider the journey of the clothing we wear.

Let’s hope in 2023 there is more understanding of the consequences of mass-produced fabrics and the pride we can all enjoy in choosing to wear organic cotton.
