I am a wife to a wonderful man, a mother to another wonderful man & a maker of many things.
I love to create - whether it's with fabric, fibre, paint or a camera. I paint in acrylics & encaustic.
I'm also always spinning, weaving & dyeing fibre.
As a sewist my favourite garments are made of linen, silk, cotton & wool.
I love to read, ride my motorcycles & my e-bike.
Life is flying by at an alarming rate - I don't want to miss a thing!

So, I am a dabbler. I like to try anything & everything that interests me.
As a result I have a lot of skills & an eclectic body of work. I used think that was a problem, but recently I decided to just go with it.
My body of work is simply ever evolving.
Here is a small sample of the many things I've created over the years.
When I'm not working, and can afford it, I love to travel. I like to explore European cities and to sit leisurely at a café and watch people go by. I like to find a nice road and take a scenic trip on my motorcycle or catch a train and enjoy the countryside as it speeds by.
I've only been to a fraction of the places I long to see, but I'm still looking out for that next destination and hope to be for many years yet.
Early in 2020 my husband and I went to see the World Junior Hockey Tournament in Ostrava, Czech Republic. It’s been a long time dream of ours to see the championships live in a European setting, and we had a great time there. Stops in Frankfurt and Prague added to the experience. If it wasn’t for the plane ride to and from, it would have been a perfect trip.
We just missed the outbreak of COVID-19 in Europe, and have been hunkered down at home ever since. Next stop - somewhere warm, or Ireland, we’ll have to see what happens with future travels...
Below are photos of some of the wonderful places I've been.
I hope you enjoy them and it inspires you to take some voyages of your own.
