I am an artist & designer based in Atlantic Canada
I am grateful for the opportunity to create everyday and for the ever present support from family, friends and clients around the world. I am an explorer born on the Atlantic, (Dublin, Ireland) and lived most of my life on the Atlantic, (Cape Town, South Africa) and continue to thrive on the Atlantic Canada South Shore (Liverpool, Canada)
I was born in Ireland and raised with a grandmother well-established in a successful clothing factory. This environment set the tone for my great love of fabric, colour, texture and design. At the age of seven, my family circumstance took our family to South Africa. The vibrant sounds, colours and fragrances of Africa added a new dimension to my formative years.
my passion for people and places is the inspiration for my work. It has been my long-held dream to incorporate my art into various wearable art pieces and unique decor items, which are now available in bags, throw pillows. & cards
observations of the everyday and my love of travel, people, cultures and language inspire me to translate my passion into colourful, playful pieces that tell a story. I endeavor to portray a sense of fun no matter how challenging life becomes.
I endeavor to discover and create not only art but the intrinsic awareness & value I can bring to the now, of where I am placed in the world and in doing so make a difference which encourages and inspires others to see & know the gold within-
