Welcome. I am a Creative designer who expresses through a love of colour & pattern. Joyfully making and often up-cycling worn out pieces so they’re loved again. I like to work with vintage china crockery, glass tesserae, alcohol inks, and mixed media. I am passionate about sharing skills, encouraging and celebrating creativity amongst like minded others. I truly believe co creating in a supportive environment is key to increasing our well being and improving our mental health.
