I studied Fine Art Printmaking at Art College and have a degree and Post Grad diploma. I put all this education to good use becoming an illustrator set painter prop maker working on film sets and music videos. For the longest time I worked selling cards and prints. I always wanted to use that experience to start my own business, and now finally I am.

I am originally from the United Kingdom , but growing up I lived in Honduras and Hong Kong. I left HK went back, left , went back and now having left met my Husband had kids travelled around the world lived in Australia here I am back again.

I love and some days hate Hong Kong. Its a trade City you can get any kind of material and product here and have any thing made here. The down side is finding out where to find these things. That is so frustating. Sometimes you find a great…

I love and some days hate Hong Kong. Its a trade City you can get any kind of material and product here and have any thing made here. The down side is finding out where to find these things. That is so frustating. Sometimes you find a great source only to find they pack up and move overnight without leaving a forwarding address! Really it's happened to me so many times.

I love making things. I have always made boxes, clothes, cards, pictures, since I was a little girl. Our house was over flowing with my output and finally the last time someone said " You should sell this" it clicked and I am.

The most difficult part of making things is having the time to do all of the things I want to do. I am overwhelmed with ideas and my Craft fair stalls often are a testament to this.

I am inspired by paper and cloth and as a printmaker, prints. I cannot walk past a cloth shop unexplored. I try to be as green as possible. I buy my cloth from a man in Wanchai Market who sells the end rolls from factories. I have been going to his stall since I was 14. In my cards I use when possible recycled card and paper and as much of my packaging as possible is recycled.

I keep a blog where I post pictures from my current makings , my craft fairs and where I live. Please come and visit.
