About

I've been making wings and whimsical things for several years now, lucking upon my current technique through falling in love with a mad scientist.

My creative space is dominated by the chaos of perpetually working on several projects at once. From sewing to embroidery to wing making to painting to twisting willow to sketching to jewellery making to whatever piques my curiosity.

I adore making wings, and wearing them too. One delicious moment walking through the shops wearing a set of my wings resulted in a delicate little girl whispering to her mama, "Is she real?" to which her mama responded, "Of course she's real!" with a conspiratorial wink to me. My work wakes a sense of wonder in everyone, and there's something precious about seeing a be-winged toddler running around the house saying, "Zoom!" with her arms out straight behind, curls bouncing about all over the place.

I've got a collection of photos of my previous wings, ear wings, drawings and other creations here:
