I'm a stitcher, artist and knitter who has always enjoyed creating things — as a child it was little models, teddy bear clothes, stitched items, gum-nut dolls, and other crazy little creations. I have sold little craft items for as long as I can remember — when I was a kid it was often only for a dollar or so, so that I could buy supplies to make more!
In 2008, I was inspired to pick up an embroidery needle again by my husband's lovely aunty and also a dear friend in England, both incredibly talented ladies.
I feel blessed to be forging an occupation out of my creative interests, and I am very grateful to my wonderful husband for having the confidence to let me run wild with it. I work as a freelance book illustrator (all types of books, from public policy to poetry to children’s stories), and I undertake other parts of the pre-publishing process (including editing, book lay-up, and ghostwriting). I also take commissions (paintings, embroideries, etc), and sell my art and hand made items at exhibitions and at a wonderful local gift shop.
