I am a self-taught artist and maker based in Dorset, UK, and I fidget between beads, paint, stitches and yarn.
My first love is portraiture but I also enjoy painting birds and wildlife; and I paint with acrylics or mixed media. My style combines realistic elements with layered brush strokes and line work, usually over abstract or bright backgrounds.
I make jewellery with semi-precious stones, pearls, vintage beads and more; and my designs are often inspired by the colour, texture and shape of the beads themselves.
A self-confessed bead addict, I also have a healthy addiction to yarn and fabric (especially vintage) and enjoy crochet and stitching as my creative therapy.
