Tell us in your own words, how you discovered polymer clay and how long have you been using it?
I discovered polymer clay when I was a child and always loved it but of course did not start using it professionally until much later! I have been crafting my original jewellery with FIMO now for 2 years.
Are there any special artists that you can attribute your interest to or that have inspired you?
Only last year I discovered Angie Scarr who is incredibly talented in making tiny food. I find that absolutely fascinating.
What is your specialty?
My speciality is wearable confectionary of any sort, if it looks tasty enough then it deserves to go on a bracelet! I like to be as unique and innovative as possible with my ideas. I originated Donut, Chocolate & fudge jewellery and had my Liquorice Allsorts & Dolly Mixtures featured in an issue of Quick & Crafty magazine!
Can you tell us why you find polymer clay the expressive medium for you?
Its amazing stuff, you can do just about anything with it and the realism you can achieve is incredible, even the colour mixing! Its really versatile, I love it.
Have you published any polymer clay books or do you have any in the works?
I'm afraid not!
I know it is very difficult to express, but have you won any awards for your polymer clay work?
My work was featured in a 2007 issue of Quick & Crafty magazine.
What are your expectations for the future? Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
Well I certainly ope my skills would have improved a lot by then! I'd love to do a craft fair sometime and have my work more well known.
Do you have any advice for the beginning polymer clay enthusiasts?
Keep working with it. The more you create, the quicker you will improve!
Are you a member of any Polymer Clay group,or any other craft
I am a SRAJD member.
What brands of polymer clay do you prefer and why?
FIMO. Its the best!
Last and most important can you tell us all about you? Your family, your training?Leave Your Interview!
