About

What started as therapy to help me deal with my chronic illness, has become an amazing journey of creativity & learning.

My life has taken me in many directions. My original goal in life was to become an exercise physiologist. That was until I became sick in 2014 and was unable to continue with such a physical career.

Crocheting became part of my therapy to overcome the issues associated with having an illness that leaves you housebound.
I had a lot of time on my hands so I have become really good at it. I am a perfectionist and I taught myself by watching you tube videos and just kept practising.

Everything I made was really popular and I soon had friends and family asking me to make things for them. I started simply with things like headbands and scarves and then eventually got into making amigurumi animals and characters.

"The Rainbow Butterfly" came about because one day I was thinking to myself that although life has thrown me a curve ball I have taken the opportunity to make a different career for myself which is just as rewarding. I also love seeing the process of turning something ordinary like a ball of yarn into something beautiful like a doll or a scarf.
I think the metaphors for both Rainbows and Butterflies describes my life perfectly and the way I like to look at the creative process of making unique things.

"you have to weather a storm before seeing the beautiful rainbow"
"a beautiful butterfly emerges from an ugly caterpillar"

I also like to make things using macrame, origami and sewing. I also like to make items using old newspaper, magazines and used nespresso capsules.

Through my ETSY shop however I will be selling my crocheted and macrame items. Most of the items I make can be personalised to suit personality & colour themes.

I love being able to put a smile on people's faces through my creations, so being able to make something unique to a person's personality is my greatest pleasure.
