I am a functional art creator.

My passion is turning old, unloved furniture into pieces of comfortable functional art. Reduce, reuse and recycle is all good, but add reclaim, redesign, refuse, recover, repair, rethink, respect, restore makes a better world!  Globally people are looking for alternatives to single use and disposable items.

Kiwiana inspired cushion cover designs and shoulder bags are another favourite thing I love to design and create. My cushions and bags are the perfect memento or souvenir. These are very popular. I am known as “The Queen of Kiwiana.”

Favourite past times: Fishing, riding my 1967 & 1970 Honda C50's, also driving my 1970 Ford Falcon Station Wagon, love dancing, roller skating and really love to cook healthy meals. Also camping and spending time with family and friends. Especially my Granddaughter Aurora.
