I am a nature lover and an artist. When those two things combine…. you get some pretty interesting earthy creations some of which you’ll see on this website.
After studying Fine Art at Bealart I endeavored to become a starving artist. Not being so big on the starving part of that deal I found it necessary to take on a series of part time jobs.
One of the more enjoyable jobs I took was at a garden centre for the summer. The following September I was signed up to study Landscape Design at Fanshawe.
Plant material became my paints. I could sculpt the earth with my pencil. It was, and still is a good match.
Now I have a huge garden, and I love getting out into it. I love getting right in there. I love to watch a bee dance around collecting pollen, or to watch the way the petals look with the sun shining through them, or to look at the intricate lace work of a fern frond.
Nature is perfect on it’s own…. I just reframe it. My jewellery allows me to take nature keep it with me always, close to my heart – literally! And that is what drives me. It’s all about keeping what you love and cherish close to your heart – whether its nature, a special rock, a place you’ve traveled, your cat or dog… keep it close to your heart.
