Welcome to Elderberry Arts. Here you will find information on my jewellery making tutorials and online courses, as well as information and links to my other works. I have a large collection of gluten free vegan recipes that are now on their very own site – The Elderberry Kitchen.
I have taken part in and completed the writer’s challenges NaNoWriMo and CampNaNoWriMo, mainly writing non-fiction pieces and eBooks. I have published the majority of my writing on HubPages.com. This consists of a wide range of informative articles. I have been an author at HubPages since 2012 and am able to draw on a range of experience and qualifications to inform my pieces.
I love creative hobbies including photography, cooking, jewellery making, scrapbooking and crochet. I started making jewellery as a hobby in 1999 and began selling my designs in 2004. I have written many tutorials and articles for jewellery making magazines in the UK and America. My tutorials can also be purchased worldwide through kindle stores. As well as my many jewellery making and macrame tutorials, I also have three full length books published on Kindle and one in print.
I love photography and prefer being behind the camera than in front! I take a lot of landscape, black & white and macro shots. I love black and white photos, there is something about them that colour just doesn’t have. Macro photography reveals a whole new world that goes unnoticed every day. I have had a few of my photographs placed in online competitions as well as being published in The Grimsby Telegraph several times.
I love old London buses, ladybirds, goats, elephants, giraffes, wind turbines, the sea and nature.
