I’m from Australia, but for exactly
4 5 6 years I’ve been in Montreal, Canada. I’m struggling to learn French, working as a hair stylist in my own salon Sweetchops and dreaming of beaches. I studied glass and print-making at the Canberra School of Art more than a decade ago and worked as a glass-blower for a long time with and around tons of great artists. I want to feature many of them here, so you know how great they are also. Now I make smaller sculpture and jewellery as well as use my scissors to create art on your head. Just kidding. When I’m not doing glass I love to sew, specifically quilts- although this particular craft does not come naturally to me. I think I unpick more than I sew – if that’s even possible.
I’m a messy tea snob with:
- a big collection of vintage glass beads
- a crazy dog named Mitch
- awesome siblings
- an enterprising boyfriend
- an online cooking site called eatpress
- a great view
- an insatiable addiction to fabric
- many talented friends
- too many unread books
I enjoy many things, like many people, this website is to record the things I love and the things I make and to talk about the people who inspire me. I hope you enjoy it and thank you for reading!
