a little about me


Hi everyone, thanks for visiting   “The Creatve Self”

Mmmmm, most important is I am mother of two beautiful children, all grown up now but they mean the world to me.

What else, lets see…………………………………..  I am an EX INTERIOR DESIGNER and ARTIST and very fortunate to combine all my talents working with many different and diverse clients over the years.

What has bought me to this point in my life?  A rich and diverse journey, many, many different experiences have woven themselves into a richly coloured tapestry, full of love,  creativity, joy and a passion for life.

I find the world around me exciting, filled with beauty and one that supports me in every way.

My creativity keeps me travelling a very diverse and varied journey, creating interiors, cutting paper, paper sculptures, photography, painting and sketching, making jewellery and more. Many of my works have been sold  but pieces can be commissioned    You can see much of my work here on this site on flickr and pinterest

I have run a successful Interior design company for nearly 30 years but IDC has now gone  !!!  Hallelujah, I made the decision to spend all my time creating for myself, its absolute bliss and thoroughly recommend to anyone who is  thinking of retiring DO IT !!!

So thats me in a nutshell !!   look through my pages and see for yourself……….
