I live in the countryside of Somerset, near Bristol, where I design and make original artwork, textiles
and jewellery. I am constantly inspired by the natural world - I trained as a zoologist and now specialise as a plant molecular biologist. So that is my day job, but in the evenings and weekends I try and create as much as possible to sell in my little shops on Etsy and Folksy. I love being by the sea, and often go beach-combing, looking for shells, pebbles and fossils.
