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

It's a game. The best days are when I empty my mind and look at things afresh - turn my workings upside down and look at them from a new perspective. That's when I move ahead and make something new. I enjoy applying surface textures – which liberate me from the “tyranny” of highly polished precious metals. My overall aim is to make work that is easy to wear – undemanding and long-lasting both in strength and style.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

I'm a maker - I like the process and I like discovering were the process leads me. I react to "unintention" and see if there's something in it that I can use.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

The work I produce in the jewellery workshop divides into two groups: commissioned work and collections. Collections are groups of pieces with a common thread – a texture, a technique or form – and usually include earrings, rings, necklaces and brooches. Commissions or one-offs come about from conversations with the client and reviewing past work.
