My Story

I remember holding a pencil my first day at school, and my teacher Mr Harvey could see I was comfortable with it in my left hand. I was born in a beautiful Edwardian house in North Drive, Liverpool. It was bordered with beautiful, mature Oak trees which was a magical place for a young girl to explore. A stones throw away was the Mystery Park, which has influenced many creative minds including The Beatles. As our family increased my parents moved outside of Aintree. It was New house right next to a river, farms, fields and lots of Horses. When I was 10 years old I used to volunteer at the stables on weekends in return for riding lessons. My personal favourite was an ex-racehorse named Asher.

 I left school at 16 and completed city and guilds in photography, and video editing. It was fantastic going down to the docks with our Pentax cameras and developing our images. We would mix negatives and apply special effects for video editing (80's  style). I loved it.

At eighteen I moved 360 miles to Cornwall, where I lived and worked for nearly three years I loved the exotic climate and the ocean. It was in my late 20's that I was blessed with two beautiful children. I then started a business designing and making hand made high class exclusive leather goods adorned with solid sterling silver finishings. I supplied many outlets in the north of England at the Albert Dock, Chester, and Manchester with an upmarket clientele. I also attended events in stately homes around the country designing products to wear and for the home. 

I started my second business Future Shockk, supplying French company NAF NAF with belts and bags. I then decided to go back to education and studied psychology, politics and economics. It was during this time that I met my current husband who was amazed at my artistic ability. He suggested I enrol in an Art degree and it was the best decision I ever made. The rest is history, we had two more wonderful children and 6 years later we relocated to the west of Ireland. The land of my forefathers. It is here that I find inspiration everyday to fuel my creative soul. With the love my life and our family.
