I am passionate about art and nature , I mainly work from home creating copper jewellery , garden plans and artwork for clients . I like new challenges , the cottage was a project I worked on for 18 months , gaining building skills along the way !
I still have twin teenage girls at home who keep me on my toes , and our two dogs . I have lived in East Gippsland for 28 years so though not quite a local , I am happy to meet guests and assist them with local knowledge of places to see , eat and things to do .
