I am an Artist and Cake Artist. My journey in cake decorating started aged 57, when I walked into my first cake class. Up until then I'd enjoyed baking for my boys growing up, but had never decorated a cake. I didn't even know what fondant was!! 😂
Cakes over the last seven years have taken me on an incredible journey. In 2015, I won the prestigious Cake Masters, "Cake Artist of The Year Award". In 2017 I was truly honoured by Cake Masters to be awarded one of the the top ten UK cake artists. I'm now a recognised international tutor (USA and Australia) and a Judge. I've been featured in several magazines in UK and other countries and so incredibly honoured by it all.
Through teaching painting (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… my sister Valerie is also an amazing artist and we chat regularly on the subject as both likeminded and sensitively tapped into our spirituality.
I enjoy pushing my own boundaries, testing out new ideas and mediums and constantly challenge myself where I can. I embrace learning through books and workshops 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 self taught in acrylics and oil painting and have had a little dabble at watercolours, also self taught. I paint for commissions as well as gifts for my beautful family and close friends.
I am fortunate enough to have an equal balance between my wonderful supportive family, who made this venture possible, and my cakes and painting commissions. I have forged genuine, much valued friendships in this joyful community of confection, as well as like-minded artists. I firmly advocate knowledge-sharing and continue to teach locally, nationwide and internationally with 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.
I surround my world in beauty, love and positivity as it enhances the creative soul. Outside of cakes, I hike a lot with my husband, grab my camera and go out and enjoy amateur photography and do quite a few painting commissions.
