A Tidbit About My Self

"An esthetic person sees beauty in the ordinary."

Organic in appearance, lyrical in nature, I allow the medium to tell a story. Working in fabric, glass and eclectic materials, I create pieces which express my sense of humour and appreciation of nature's beauty. I feel there is no better art than what the planet brings to view. Nature is a constant source of curiosity and intrigue, and on every scale we are awed by this universal gallery. My process begins with translating what I see into something personal. Texture and colour are freckled with oddities in my pursuit of making a work individual. One of a kind.

I also feel very strongly about supporting local and national talent; this is essential for building strong communities and countries. Using materials found or sourced from my area, I build from my environment. Much of my fabric is recycled from clothing and furniture; beach stones, wood, seeds and other found objects comprise my jewellery; business cards and tags are reused cardboard. No two are alike. Handcrafted original art is what I'm all about.
