I studied in graphic design, but arts and crafts have always been important since childhood. I'm drawn to many senses, from texture, light, all the way to scents and the effects of aromatherapy. I love to work with many materials like stained glass, pottery, cloth, leather, or sea washed glass collected from the Cumbrian Coast. I developed mixed media mosaic techniques not practiced everywhere, and I love to experiment and re-purpose! Mosaics are being rediscovered and reinvented. They can be awe inspiring with such richness and textural elements inspired by jewels or nature, for example. They can be formal - or informal and organic. On another level they can have a graphic, chunky - and funky feel.
