I was born in Manchester and moved to Buckinghamshire when I was 14.  I started work as a Secretary & retired as a Book Keeper - having been a Customer Services Manager & Quality Manager for various manufacturing companies during that time.  In the Summer of 2017 we fulfilled our dream of moving to Cornwall and Craft Illusion has become very popular both online and with local visitors to the the Tea and Treasure Gift Shop in the centre of Penzance


My husband Terry, originally from Blackpool, is a talented wildlife photographer and works for the RSPB, so his photographic advice & studio are proving very useful.


I have always been interested in handicrafts & I was fortunate enough to be able to retire early to pursue my passion. 


And of course customer service and quality apply to all businesses!


Then there's my little Smart Car called LILY the PINK, You have to be over a certain age to know why.....!


Lily helps me with my local deliveries & outlet visits & earns her keep by advertising CRAFT ILLUSION along the way.
