I am a studio art jeweler working in precious metals, inspired by the natural world and my aim is to produce beautiful, wearable works of art. I have always been interested in art and this has developed into a passion for making jewellery...
... I was extremely fortunate to meet and be taught by Bill Wilson, who was a wonderful and generous teacher, to whom I am eternally indebted. On a trip to Florence I was captivated by an Etruscan style ring and this ignited my interest in learning both ancient and modern metalsmithing techniques. I love the tactile quality of precious metals. My inspiration is drawn from the beauty of natural forms, the legacy of the ancients and other cultures I have encountered during extensive travel. In 2015 I became a member of The Goldsmiths’ Company Directory.
