I have been an artist all my life.

As a child I was always wandering around with a sketch book. Drawing and my set of 72 Derwent pencils were my passion.

I continued with my art study at university studing gold and silversmithing as a component of my teaching degree.

In 2000 with my children Alex and Danielle grown up I began seriously painting in watercolours.

Then is 2005 I began jewellery making and then glass bead making in 2006. I am now seriously addicted to creating glass beads and jewelllery. It is a wonderful, wonderful creative outlet.

2011, I am continuing to refine my bead making techniques. Experimenting with new glasses and bead shapes and yes I am still having so much fun.
