My earliest memories are playing with paint to copy the flowers in my Mum’s garden and cardboard, wood and fabric to make dolls houses and furniture. I still play with paint, paper, wood, glass and anything else to make marks.

My work is design orientated, leaning towards the creative crafts. Producing an artwork needs to be an enjoyable process so most of my works are bright, positive and a little bit quirky. Sometimes I use the art process to create positive energies or ideals for my own life. I like my works to tell a story, but if they don’t, I like the process to be pure fun and when abandoned, bring pleasure to others.
