My art has been influenced by my family, my heritage of ship captains, rebel rousers and amazing pioneer women. I enjoy finding pre-loved objects, re-purposing them into jewellery. The mix of the old and new, merging them together, creating beauty and new memories keeps them alive. It’s stimulating working in mixed media. My stamp range features antique covers which inspires me and the juxtaposition lends a unique beauty to every piece I create. Teaching invigorates me, I want my students to feel comfortable working and experimenting on projects of their own.
