I even have a diploma in Fashion Design from the UCFV in Canada!

I think it is safe to say that I am a bit of a course junkie. I love learning new things, but I still love lampworking best.
Life changes, and in April 2011 I chose to sell my beautiful Bristol shop and teaching studio for a move to London where I now have a private studio I work out of. I can also be found roaming the UK demonstrating for Troll Beads at their special and trade events.
