Pica Collection

Glass and tile continue to fascinate me. 

The way these materials can be used to tell a story and how the reveal pops has always kept my creative attention.

Hoarding bright shiny things shows us that the magpie in my spirit is strong 

Jarma Bums

Jarma Bums are hand made in Manawatu, NZ

I am a novice sewer who has taken a shine to retro sheets and bedlinen

Creativity gives us freedom!

In the same way that confidence gives us freedom, I think creativity makes us able to cause change in our lives. The practice of a creative process primes our world view to openness. In this openness we are more able to strike upon solutions.

Creativity is kin to Ecology!

In the same way that frugality sits opposite to waste, I see a creative response as a way to lessen our footprint on our ecology. Where we can engage creativity to meet our recreation and functional needs we have a real opportunity to design and take responsibility for how our actions impact the world around us.

Creativity changes people & it is people who change the world.

The next best time is right now.

Don’t put off your own creative response any longer!
