I graduated in Sociology in 1996. After a year of extensive travel around Australia I returned to London and became involved with an established mosaic company MCC Design. After a period of volunteering and learning the skill of mosaic it was clear I wanted to explore mosaic more deeply. I continued working with MCC and began my own mosaic projects seeking to develop my own mosaic identity. I learned to teach through the skills of my two business partners and am now an experienced confident and motivated workshop leader and teacher who enjoys the challenges of working in all community settings. I have made time to explore my own mosaic work, developing a love of stained glass and text based art. I love the challenges of running a small business and am constantly looking for new ways to develop my own practice.
