I'm a beader based in London. I came to beadwork in 2001, from an artistic background - which included painting and the fibre arts. Whilst I continue some of these interests, mainly felt making, temari and embroidery - beading is my main love.

I am very active in my role of encouraging beadwork, supporting beaders and spreading beading knowledge. I've written for the Beadworkers Guild on many occasions and taught workshops and taster sessions on their behalf.

Recently, I've devoted more of my working life to beads and now sell some of my patterns and instructions on bead-patterns.com, and since December 2004, have been teaching regular project based workshops in London (see here for dates). I also sell some of my finished beadwork privately and run a monthly beading group.
