About

It may not be easy, life isn’t easy, but dreams keep you alive.

Hello and welcome!

I have many years experience making flowers from silk and fabric. In recent years I have developed my own style and technique creating leather flowers. With this technique I try achieves a perfect reflection of nature. I also enjoy the contrast of creating fantasy leather flowers.

I worked as a geologist for 15 years. At this time I started working with leather. This hobby became a passion. It was natural for me to use leather and gems together, to create jewellery. My pieces were included in both local and international exhibitions.

The next step in my journey was studying silk flower making. The focus of this study was the Japanese NunoBana and SomeBana schools. Using this knowledge, and my experience in working with leather, enabled me to establish her own method of creating leather flowers.

I soon became aware that to be able to express myself in art was not just exciting for me but, would ultimately lead me onto a passion for teaching. As well as me running my own workshops, I conduct workshops for the the International Millinery Forum 2014 and Hats off to Brisbane 2013. I am delighted to share my knowledge and passion with you.
