I'm an internationally renowned Milliner/Hatter and live and work in Ireland. I specialise in quality hand-made hats for HIM & HER and give exceptional Millinery Workshops to all hungry hatters.
I am a girl of the 60's and was blessed with the life of travel, colour and spice. The influences, sights, textures and magic of the exotic world became the basis of my creative life called Millinery. For close to three decades my life has been made of hats, and I now share my unique skills with hat makers all around the world. My couture millinery training in Australia gave me a dynamic that is diverse and special. Many success stories in the hat-world have passed through my studio. I love to teach all areas of hat making to all levels under the ever changing skies of the western periphery of Europe - Home
