i love

Born and raised on a dairy farm 20 minutes from the beach, I spent countless hours as a child sketching and painting in the long grass surrounded by cows. Luckily for me, my primary school teacher taught me how to love art in all its differing forms, from marbling paper to cover our books, to screen printing our school uniforms and painting the backdrops for the school play. Life then took a few twists and turns, and it was not until I had my two beautiful children that my creativity returned.

 For over 24 years now I have had a creative business, including stitchery design, creating projects for magazines and owning a bricks-and-mortar space. My days are filled with beautiful linens, a 4b pencil, my favourite quotes, a needle and thread and my trusty little Elna sewing machine

When I was just a little girl my beautiful dad would recite poetry to me, words were important to him.  I lost my dad just a few short weeks after starting this business and the word marvellous was one of his favourites.  This quote from Amelia Barr is so special to me and it makes me feel like my dad is still here by my side.

"It is always the simple that produces the marvellous."
