At the tender age of 19 in 1991 I was very lucky to become my mother in law Barb Romalis’s offsider and I learnt from her the ancient crafts of faience and silversmithing. After working with Barb for many years I set up my own home studio and jewellery business Ibis Beads. With the support of my own mother’s help we started to sell my jewellery at art and craft markets. I became obsessive about jewellery and bodily adornment.
Since then I have steadily created pieces for many shows, exhibits and markets. I have a regular Saturday morning stall at Moruya Markets and I have work available all year around at the beautifully curated Dowry Store, Vulcan St Moruya.
