I am drawing on this practice to design and handcraft wearable beadart that can talk about things of signficance to me - social justice, respect for diversity and creating a more eco-friendly world.

My messages of hope, possibility and desire are written through my use of shape, pattern and colour to create designs that escape the ordinary and embrace difference.

My hope is to create beadwork that is so pleasing and striking that those who wear it and those who see it will talk about it and so the messages of diversity, the environment and social justice that I am writing into my beadwork will also be talked about.
