Like you, my life has had several acts – twists and turns, zigs and zags that have led me to where I am today.

Act One: I trained as a fashion designer and developed an eye for detail, aesthetics and expertise with textiles. In 2005, I was thrilled when my lifestyle brand, Miss Bad Betty was successfully launched at Canadian luxury retailer, Holt Renfrew.

Act Two: After winning the Ontario road cycling championships, I put my design pencil down. For the next five years, I took a “zag” into the elite work of road cycling in France to compete at an international level.

Act Three: Now, inspired by nature’s abundant beauty, I create art. In spring though to autumn, I design and build exceptional urban garden and exterior living spaces at gardenexuberance.com And in the winter when the garden is dormant, I craft unique, hand-stitched embroidery art.
