How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

Detail and texture, along with tactile forms ...these things inspire me....and so that is what I try to do, in some way, with silver and gold.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Being free to make and having the space and confidence to do...I primarily do it for me; and always hope that you will love it too.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

I am a designer/ maker, creating etched and oxidised silver jewellery, inspired by nature, and patterns found in architecture.

Your practice & activities include e.g workshops, teaching: 

I had fully intended to start teaching at my workshop from 2020. My workshop was kitted out with desks etc ready for the first few customers....2020 then hit us, and so the world has changed. I hope at some point to get back to those days. We will see.
I normally create to exhibit at contemporary craft fairs and galleries.
I sell online from my website
People can visit by appointment at my studio.
I am a member of the Worcester Guild Contemporary Craft
& Shropshire Guild too.

CV & Education, relevant & leading to your artistic practice: 

I went to Hereford College of Art from 2004-6 and did a fantastic foundation art course. I always knew that I wished to work with metal...and so thats what I did. I learned to work with metal, starting with sculptural pieces, and over time it got paired down, to etching; this was the bit that I really loved doing. Jewellery was just a natural progression. I work mainly with silver, occasionally with gold and also a little bit with bronze too.

Exhibitions in the last 3 years: 

Too numerous to list ...lots, all fairly local...ie south of the UK.
Come and see me at my studio and ask me!
