Art is my absolute passion!
I am a mixed media artist based in beautiful Cornwall, UK ( deep in Poldark country for those of you who watch the show!)
I trained in both Fashion/Textiles and Fine Art and I have had a long and varied career, including work as a glass engraver and also designing and making headdresses and accessories for a small bridal house . I have been running face to face workshops and sharing art skills and practice for many years now, organised a number of successful joint exhibitions and delight in bringing creative inspiration to all!
As a proud single mum of two amazing daughters but I can't pretend it wasn't a struggle at times, and although I never stopped learning and creating I also worked a LOT of hard, rubbish jobs on the side to get to where I wanted to be and keep a roof over!
I still work long hours,showing regularly in local galleries and online events, but I now work out of my little home cottage studio and offer online lessons and courses sharing my skills and experience with others at all stages of their creative paths. It brings me so much joy to share and encourage creativity in others and I believe it is vital to us as humans to be able to express ourselves. My aim with all of these offerings is to keep them both inspiring AND affordable, rich in content , but at an attainable cost for anyone who feels the urge to learn and develop their creative side. I hope you will join me on your journey and as a lifelong student myself I look forward to learning and sharing with you.
Enjoy the journey and happy creating.
