I’m a wife to my wonderful husband Rick and a mother to my beautiful daughters Tamara and Erin (and anyone else who will let me mother them, too).

I’m an artist and fine arts restorer in 27 different mediums, as such I use a range of tools, adhesives, solvents and techniques to restore broken artefacts. Add to this a family tradition of sharing and collecting handy hints, throwing a passion for organic chemistry, and you get a woman who can offer more solutions for stain removal than you can poke a stick at.

I take talkback questions on numerous radio programs every week and I love it when other people get a kick out of the wonder and beauty that I find in the simplest things. I love finding creative solutions to the everyday problems that surround us and so far I have never been stumped with a ‘how to’ question around the home.
