Watching budding artists develop - at any age - is the best part about my work!
I provide craft expansion with unique craft workshops for the public and community projects in a fun setting. I love teaching a wide mix of crafts like mosaics, felting, printing, tie dye, batik, soap making and bath bombs.
It's Official: Creativity is Good for You!
Arts and Health are important together. Creating has a way of making you feel better, like a good cup of tea. It brings people together, builds confidence, makes life fun, and who doesn't need a little break from it all? Crafts can appeal to all the senses: visual, smell and touch. I like students to experiment and explore - that's what I call craft expansion! Anyone can have a go!

About my Work
I love working with tactile surfaces and experimenting with texture, light, reflection and transparency. Mosaics have so many possibilities from informal and natural to jewel-like and aquatic, and I push these boundaries with a sense of adventure. Mosaic Commissions are available in glass tiles or stained glass mosaics for feature walls, fireplaces, or to commemorate a favourite portrait or subject. Mosaics are great for indoors or in a garden to create an atmosphere to your desire.
