is curiousity. There is
no cure for curiousity.

About Me

‚Äč

I have been painting and creating since my early childhood, from tiny food to miniature gardens.

Many years later I continue to create my way through life.

I paint in acrylics, watercolours, pastels, oils and alcohol inks. I forge jewellery from silver, fused glass and semi - precious stones and use collage. I also make unique toys, dioramas, ceramics, cards and free-machine embroidered bags. I have written and illustrated, Tiny Teddy Tidies Up, an eco book for toddlers published in 1994.

For 30 years I have had a passion for dollhouses and miniatures, with my large 18 room Haven Hall dollhouse achieving runner up in the Great British Dollhouse Competition held in Kensington London in 2011.

I have exhibited in the UK from Devon to London and France to New York.

I collect and sell curios and have travelled around the world with a special interest in the Far East and India. The exotic and strange fascinate me.
