New Work

I have been going through a little bit of a 'wearable art' phase lately! I love creating jewellery and things you can wear or use. I have been creating collaged pendants on recycled bamboo tiles and then I strung them onto recycled silk sari ribbons. I hope you like them :)

2011 Sammamish Arts Fair

I am once again a participating artist in this years Sammamish Arts Fair. This will be my 5th year, which is as long as the art fair has been running :) I feel very fortunate to be a part of it every year and I have seen it grow from strength to strength. I am very proud to be a part of that and I hope to see it continue its success.

This year I decided to create a YouTube channel and interview some of our wonderful artists and you can take a look here:
