I'm a sailor. I grew up sailing with my Dad who had two vices, sailing and ice cream. I was away from the water for several years and came back to it "quite by accident". The moment I got out in the middle of the Bay with the sails up, all the memories came flooding back and I "fell in love" again. Sea Jewel teaches me and takes care of me and whether I'm working on her or sailing her, there is no place I'd rather be.
It's really difficult to choose a picture to put here as I want to feature both the bags and the boat work. Hopefully the site has given you a bird's eye view into both, giving you an idea of me as a designer.
I love to sew in the winter months and enjoy the challenge of coming up with new ideas and designs. The materials available now for crafting beautiful, functional and durable creations are limitless.
