The vibrant tension between old and new items alongside each other and the surprise of traditional in a contemporary and unexpected way makes me happy. I delight in filling life with hand crafted creations and objects found in obvious and sometimes obscure places.
I was educated as a Home Economist, have worked in journalism and interior design and owned an eclectic coffee shop. Years ago, I read Edith Schaeffer’s book – Hidden Art. A defining moment that helped me to realise that I was made in the image of The Maker, and that as I created, I was representing something of God’s creative nature!
Since its inception in 2007, I’ve designed and co-ordinated the making of Freshly Found products, photographed them, sent them around the world, supplied private and corporate customers, and taken them to markets and the Design Indaba. I have documented the making process and published tutorials and facilitated workshops.
I am a coffee snob, an ENFP and an Enneagram type 4. I love my family and am privileged to be a wife, mom, mom-in-law and granny.
I have a strong sense that I was MADE to MAKE, and love passing that Maker passion on.
Thank you so much to those customers who take the time to say thank you.
It is sooo appreciated ♥
Delighted and just in time
Thank you so much for the book. Well done with the Packaging.
