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

I started designing and making jewellery at a young age, exploring mixed materials, colours, textures and geometric forms. Although maintaining my original style, my work has naturally progressed. My love of 20th Century Abstract Art has inspired my recent work. Bold colour, shape and line feature heavily in my designs whilst being sensitive to the delicate. I use traditional goldsmithing methods and make all of my pieces by hand at my studio in Ross-on-Wye. My aim is to create original, affordable statement pieces that can be worn every day.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

Art is a huge part of my life and my identity. I have been an Art Teacher for twenty years and I am at my happiest when I am creating, making and sharing my skills and ideas. For me, art is an expression of identity and if my work puts a smile on someone's face, I am delighted.
