Its ME

Welcome to my story and how it all started!

I've always been creative, embarking on many courses, from Patchwork & Quilting, Floristry, and even obtaining a Diploma in Garden Design.

In 2011 after a few stressful events in my life, I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. I'd lost 2 stone in weight and battled with the disease. I changed my work pattern, eating routine and began drinking herbal tea. One day I discarded a Rooibos tea bag on my boiler.The following morning I noticed beautiful red tones on the canvas and immediately reached for my watercolours. This was the start of my very own personal art therapy!

Tests continued until Christmas 2018 and I stopped medication. My results were back to normal. I celebrated with a rooibos tea and a chinese take away!

During lockdown 2020 I diversified. I started to look at my natural surroundings and embarked on a new practice using an alternative photography process to produce unique prussian blue wonders called Cyanotypes and another beautiful process called Encaustic Wax. I now encorporate these two practices in my work.
