We love the fantasy world, so what better creature than a dragon!

I started creating my little Fimo dragons back in 2013. I was quite proud of how my first dragon turned out, and was surprised at the amount of compliments I received from family and friends which spurred me on to make more. Eventually more people learned that I made my little creations and wanted to purchase them so I went to a few craft fairs, started a Facebook page and started selling my dragons in galleries. The Red Shed Studio & Gallery have been an absolute dream in helping me get my creations out there and I would not have been able to display most of my work if not for them, so they play a huge part in my selling and advertising.

My reason for dragons: I have always loved fantasy art work, but no other mythological creature stood out more to me than the dragon. I had little statues, pictures & posters of dragons; I was a little dragon obsessed! But I do make other little creatures. I have made Geckos, ponies, snowflakes and more.

I have always been an artsy person, so to be able to create art and give it loving homes was a real dream come true.
