You never know when inspiration is going to strike, the idea for this Autumn Dream collection germinated many years ago. On a beautiful autumn day when my children were just toddlers, we spent a fun afternoon paddling by the seashore on a pebbly beach near my home, our happy place. The kids were in awe and seriously impressed with their super-talented mothers dazzling prowess for skimming stones on the water.
During that afternoon I started to focus on all the different colours of the rocks, pebbles, seaweed and sand. I remember watching the colours gleam and how everything seemed to sparkle with the arrival of each gentle wave. The next day I was so excited to try to recreate these beautiful, earthy, natural tones in my workshop.
Over the last 20 years, I have strived to constantly explore new techniques and develop my craft to keep my work fresh and new. This is especially evident in this collection, it has taken on some vibrant green and orange tones to introduce more autumnal colours in recent years.
