Self taught bead embroidery fanatic. I was taught to sew by the age of 4 by my impoverished immigrant mother who was creative. I took up beading at the age of 54 to help with my persistent dyslexia but it has not helped one bit. What has eventuated is a real passion for unique bead embroidery pieces which I sell online, in an exclusive art gallery and also exhibit. I love designing and making bold jewelry for women who know what they like and are not afraid to wear it. I love colour, form and texture, being a pastel and acrylic painter. I bead every day of the week in my beading room. When not beading, I am thinking of beads and their endless possibilities. I even dream up designs just before waking up. The twilight zone has greatly assisted me with my one of a kind designs.
