From the Artist's Flickr profile:
I am a 40 something married, mother of two little boys .. I got married late in life and consequently had my children in my late 30's. My eldest son started Grade 1 this year, my youngest son started Prep this year. I am mum to two fur babies as well... they are Cavoodle dogs, Willo is a black minature Cavoodle and Hudson is an apricot toy Cavoodle... they are great mates, although the little one is boss!
I am a member of the Victorian Beading Society here in Australia. I sell my work through a gallery in Sydney, my website and private commissions. I adore vintage and antique beads, modern beads do not have the appeal that these beads have for me. With exception of all things Swarovski and seed beads, particularly Miyuki and Toho. I cannot find Aikos beads here in Australia, but will endeavour to do so from somewhere as I would like to try them.
I write project tutorials for an Australian magazine, Australian Beading which is a bi-monthly publication. I design a jewellery piece then write the tutorial on how to construct it, materials etc. I enjoy this immensely.
