Growing up on a farm I didn’t have the distractions of town to entertain me, I grew up instead doing a lot of art, craft and cooking. My mother always encouraged me and was always trying out a new skills like screen printing or marbling, making sure we all had a go.

I still find great satisfaction in learning new things and I now practice  in natural dying, ceramics, knitting, screen printing, quilting, sewing, crochet, weaving, painting, drawing and basket making to name a few. My next endeavor is to try my hand at spinning but this may be one skill too many!
