Born in Birmingham, England, I moved to the USA 4 years ago. After spending 3 1/2 years living in Minnesota I now live in Southern California. 

My passion for miniatures began when I was just a small child.

My Grandfather was a master woodworker who made many toys for his children & grandchildren. One of these was a most wonderful dollhouse he made for my Mother. It had many rooms, was fully furnished & had a roof garden. Many of my friends had dollhouses but none had a garden so this fascinated me more than anything. A garden made it seem like a  'real' house. As a little girl I played with it for hours, never tiring of my miniature fantasy world.

My Grandparents regularly took me to visit the model village at Bourton-On-The-Water in England. One day they took me to see Titania’s Palace, an 18 room dollhouse hand-built by Sir Neville Wilkinson over a period of 15 years. If I wasn’t already fascinated with miniature buildings by then this really sealed it for me.

I was captivated & I hoped one day I would be able to own something as beautiful as this. Almost 40 years later I can still vividly remember tiny details.

As I grew up real life took over and many years in a demanding career in advertising & recruitment kept me too busy to do little else other than work. Since moving to the US I have been very lucky in that I have been able to step away from the corporate world & start concentrating on making miniatures again. 

Currently I make mainly 12th scale flowers, plants & garden accessories but have many plans for new things.
