About me

Occupation Jewellery maker and artist
Location United Kingdom
Introduction I love creating a three dimensional shape or capturing a mood inspired by mythology or the changing seasons. I enjoy embroidering with beads or combining them with wrapped and woven wire or thread. Some of my pieces use wire and metal which I hammer and forge using traditional silversmithing techniques and tools, often pushing the boundaries by including mixed media elements. My sketchbook is an important resource and a constant source of inspiration. The challenge of transforming a drawing or watercolour sketch into a piece of wearable art is a creative puzzle that I find endlessly fascinating.
