- My studio is located in Brisbane, Australia. For the past 10 years I’ve been enjoying creating jewellery designs from an array of mundane materials. Tupperware and knitting needles have remained a firm favourite. My designs have been published numerous times, graced the shelves of many wonderful galleries and stores and been worn by those whose aren’t afraid of colour and attention. All of which I am very grateful for. For several years I’ve also been fortunate enough to work with many businesses as a coach and workshop facilitator.

Who's A Media Star Now?!!
Every time I talk to my mother she asks me, "Are you in any magazines at the moment?","When are you going to be on TV?", "Have you done any interviews this week?" or "Any more books?" On the odd occasion (!) when I have nothing much to report she sounds so disappointed. I think she is getting a bit too use to it.
After asking me all the usual questions again last week she had some news of her own to tell. Apparently her friend (also a former Tupperware Lady) was reading the local newspaper when she saw a photo of my mum. It was in an article about Tupperware. They had dug up an old SMH image of her, obviously kept of file somewhere. How funny!
