I have always had a creative streak, since childhood, but a varied professional career lured me to work mainly in the not-for-profit sector, near and far, for many years. My work has encompassed project co-ordination, conference planning, administration/management, facilitation, travel and more, and has taken me around the world.
After successfully selling my early creative work (which was created purely for pleasure and sometimes not even for sale!) I realised there was a demand for my style of work, and I decided I wanted to concentrate more on my creative capabilities as well as combine that with my facilitation and professional experience. I set up my own business in 2006 - Beyond Facilitation and Creativion Ltd - and have loved the freedom of being self-employed and doing what I love every day.
Learning and developing my artistic style
through my own observation, research and experimentation during my adult
years, I continue to draw on experiences of countries and cultures I have encountered, and using the various skills I have built up along the way.
I enjoy exploring beyond the known, striving to create the exceptional.
The Masquerade "mask" side of my work has flourished beyond my wildest dreams - it seems that the mystique of the Masquerade event will never fade. I have created masks for people from all walks of life, for all sorts of events, including corporate, private and weddings. From smaller birthday celebrations to large-scale masquerade balls, my masks have been "in action" around town, and around the world for many years. I also run workshops for children and adults, by appointment. Contact me for more info.
