About me

I have been making things (I’ve been told) for much longer than I can even remember. Art is my passion and drawing, painting, printing, bookbinding, sculpture and working with textiles are what bring my life meaning. I grew up in a house with strangely bright colors on the walls and mystifying patterns in the Persian rugs on the floors. I have loved color and pattern ever since and they are themes that continue in my art.

I love learning new techniques. I am currently undertaking a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art, which follows on from years of other studies and workshops in a wide range of art practices. I work in a computer lab with Kindergarten kids by day and  paint, draw and make things after hours. I’m inspired by everyday objects and my collection of vintage “How to…” books. I love to combine, intertwine and superimpose images to create a story, often making unusual combinations and injecting them with subtle humor.

I started this blog 26th March 2006 initially as a way of sharing my sketching with other members of the Yahoo group Everyday Matters. I was amazed at how much I enjoyed blogging and discovered that the blogging community is a fantastic bunch of people and a very sharing environment. I opened my Etsy shop in January 2008. Since then I have enjoyed the community that makes up Etsy and 'meeting' my customers who come from all over the globe. I am a very proud member of DUST Team (Down Under Street Team) and Printsy Street Team on Etsy.
