Born in South Africa I have been living in Australia since 1993.
Textiles and design have always filled my life having learned most through books and "University of Disaster". In 2004 I stumbled on Felting and took it with great passion.
Now I create one of a kind "Mixed Media/Textile Art" to wear and for the home.
I teach at various Community Centres in Australia and Overseas.
My inspirations come from colour, texture and my life in South Africa.
