tell us about your background

I am a psychiatric nurse, part time, which I enjoy although it is challenging.I am a mother to three teenagers, which I also find enjoyable and challenging!
I have always loved making things. I have made cards, decoupage, embroideries and mosaics.
Creating new things from old things gives me great joy.

tell us about what you create

I make art pieces with mosaic and mirror and images, on wood.I love using old, recycled china and old mirrors. I also love finding funny old vases and mosaicking them in the quirkiest ways.

What is your inspiration/influences?

I have a fondness for the Holy Madonna, fabulous Frieda and the Young (Queen) Elizabeth. My pieces are a bit reminiscent of little altars.My many trips to Italy have supplied me with rich visual memories and a serious supply of “holy cards”.

What materials do you use?

I have a large amount of second hand materials/treasures in my shed as I am an avid op shopper which is my inspiration as well.

why did you choose in.cube8r?

I am thrilled to be a part of such an original and important space for people “who make things”.
