I was born in South Africa, grew up in Zimbabwe, moved to the UK and then back to the sunshine. After working in Port Elizabeth and Cape Town, I finally settled in Johannesburg, got married and had our son.
Most of my working life was in IT and after early retirement to look after our son, I was fortunate enough to have time to explore my creativity. This ranged from making cards, to decoupage, mosaic and photography. A friend asked me to join her art class and even though I couldn’t draw a stick man in those days I found my art.
My husband died tragically in 2016 and I re-joined the work force, running the Company he left me. Three years later I sold the business and retired once more. The brush had left me but the desire to create had not. I started designing bespoke custom jewellery pieces in gold and silver with semi-precious and precious stones. It grew and so did my ideas which extended to one of a kind horse hair designs including bangles, pendants and earrings.
