i'm an artisan who just loves to make things....anything. i love to experiment which is why i probably have my fingers in so many different pots...so-to-speak. funny that- clay is the one thing i rarely touch! i think it's very important to give my 100% best to everything that i do & make. some people might call it perfectionism...i like to think of it as caring :)
Why do I make things?-
Well I had a life changing accident in 2000 which left me unable to go back to work. Years later when I'd finished feeling sorry for myself I decided to start concentrating on the things I could do instead of those I couldn't & as a result I began to craft & paint as therapy. This soon turned into requests when friends & family saw what I was creating & the rest as they say is history!

I am a very proud member of the CAST team on Etsy...amongst others :))…
