Making things

I adore making things, I blame my wonderful parents for this. Growing up there was always an attitude in my house that is you wanted something…make it! Now I make costumes and outfits for theatre and adventuring, Movies and video clips, webpages, photographs and images, and just this morning a racing teapot!


I think having adventures is the best way to encounter the world around us….

in progress – come back later for complete sentances and the like 🙂

Hi, sadly I missed seeing the screening of your film at the CSAFE tonight. I share your concerns and am doing a MFA on a similar path. Please be in touch- I’d love to shout you a coffee at the Eco sanctuary and discuss your film and thesis.

Hi Lynley

Sorry for such a slow reply. Due to family matters i never made the talk – perhaps you’ve already seen i’m on the programme for later in the year, maybe i’ll see you then

You could certainly see your skills within the work you write. The world hopes for more passionate writers like you who arent afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart. gaacefefggee
