Previously Callicious Cakes (business name change)
I am an internationally recognised Award winning Cake Artist. My journey in cake decorating started in Feb 2010, aged 56, when I walked into my first cake class. 2 months later I did my first cake, my son's wedding cake, and have been on such a roller coaster of confectionery creative fun ever since.
Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would take me where it has. In 2015, I won the prestigious Cake Masters, "Cake Artist of The Year Award" . Since 2014, I'm now a recognised international tutor and judge and featured in several magazines in UK, USA, India, Australia.
My background is pure graphics, no painting or fine arts at all. I gave up art completely for an entire decade and thoroughly enjoyed my career in Facilities Management, PA and Finance Managment for two American software companies .
In 2008, my husband persuaded me to give up my demanding job and to go back to my creative roots. I decided to give oil painting a try and discovered a whole new world in art. Thus ended my decade-long art sabbatical and I did two oil paintings and before I knew it, my canvas switched to icing in 2010.
Through teaching (both on cakes as well as other mediums), I have shown people that they CAN paint, when they have insisted they are not artists. We are ALL artists, and in so many versatile varied ways.
I enjoy pushing my own boundaries, testing out new ideas and mediums and constantly challenge myself where I can. I embrace learning with a passion as I am a huge advocate that you never stop learning, it was artists do.... learn and strive for more and more... with PASSION and verve and the sheer joy of creating.
I am fortunate enough to have an equal balance between my wonderful supportive family and my cakes and painting commissions. I have forged genuine, much valued friendships in this joyful community of confection. I firmly advocate knowledge-sharing and have now started a shop for tutorials on my cake page. I am already teaching privately in my area and do various painting and sugar flower classes throughout the UK.
I love coming onto Cakes Decor as not only am I inspired by all that I see, but love watching people grow and becoming inspired by others. I find this cake community so warming, welcoming and positive.
