I have continued on with my art and this workshop as a dedication to my mum who, sadly, passed from this world in 2008.

My mum was also an artist and loved the things that I was able to make. It was my Mum who taught me how to draw and gave me my love of art.

She was also a keen gold hunter and you see her here as she takes one of her rare breaks from detecting in the Goldfields of Australia.

I miss her more than I could possibly explain to you and my one and only hope is that she watches me still and is just a little proud of her daughter.

Truly, without her, I am lost in this world.

All my love Mum.


My Mother, Yasmin.

My Dedication and reason to carry on forging.
