I have been working as a full time milliner since 2015.

All my pieces are designed and created by me in my Williamstown studio.

My Grandmother was a milliner so I like to think it’s in my DNA - though I took a long detour via 20 years in the legal field as a transcript typist.

I have an extensive wooden block collection and each piece is lovingly blocked before being hand stitched with the utmost of patience, care and love - and hopefully a sense of fun!

My work has featured on numerous catwalks, magazines and Fashions on the Field (FOTF) - I’ve had the thrill of having one of my pieces walk a Parisian catwalk and Possum Ball Millinery has made an appearance at the Queen’s Garden Party at Buckingham Palace!

In 2019/2020 I was President of the Millinery Association of Australia, a role which saw me responsible for the leadership, direction and coordination of responsibilities for the Association and has left a lasting imprint in me to raise the awareness of our amazing millinery in Australia.

I have judged millinery at the Millinery Association of Australia’s Design Award and The Royal Melbourne Show and I have been a guest speaker at the Royal Victorian Motor Yacht Club’s annual spring luncheon.

My wish when creating my pieces is that you have as much fun wearing them as I have creating them!
