Hand made paper beads with a sprinkling of wildlife art.

My family say I was born with a needle in one hand and a paintbrush in the other. Growing up I was surrounded by a variety of crafts, from sewing and knitting to carpentry and home decorating and have drawn and painted for nearly 30 years. It became obvious to the family that I was artistic when I painted the ears of the family dog red with a felt tip pen. I guess it was only natural that I would move into a creative job when I got older.

My paper beads have been very popular and have led to my work being featured in magazines, books and on TV. My paintings and drawings have also been featured in books and are in collections all over the UK, the United States, Canada and Australia.

I currently live in rural Scotland and run my business from the kitchen table.
