''Such a cheerful addition to our home. It's obvious that great care is taken in making each item.''

Waiheke is a great place to be creative. We're surrounded by creative people, and beauty, and the pace of life makes you feel as if you are always on holiday.

I source materials from thrift shops as much as possible - they are such a treasure trove. I love giving fabrics a second life - they have so much mana when they have already been used as something else.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy making it. No two items are the same, so you can be assured of getting something unique.
