Biography

I have been a keen crafts person since my early teenage years starting with knitting jumpers, embroidery and soft toys for my many nieces and nephews.

I have always enjoyed beading and embroidery as a past time as a balance to my career in human resources.  In about 2000 I started beaded knitting with cotton and seed beads. After the Pomonal fires in 2006 I wanted to use my beaded knitting skills and wire to make jewellery. Once I became aware of knitted/crochet wire jewellery I was hooked.  It was about this time that I got very interested in making beaded jewellery using many different techniques.

More recently I have been involved in textile arts including felting, weaving, knitting and crochet.  I have participated in a number of community art installations at Halls Gap, Pomonal and Stawell.

I sell my jewellery at the Pomonal Village Market, Grampians Store-Pomonal and through my membership with the Grampians Studio & Gallery.
