Designer, Jewellery Maker, Enameller, Teacher, Printmaker
The unpredictable nature and untamed beauty of the Scottish coastline and landscape is my inspiration. Designs are informed by the textures, colours, shapes and light I find there and the emotions they evoke. I use silver and enamel in my contemporary jewellery. Enamel allows me to introduce colour into my work and I use a palette that echoes my inspiration.
I explore traditional jewellery making and enamelling techniques in an experimental way, creating unique mark making and form. Each stage is made by hand; I prefer the fluidity this gives my work; nothing is identical. I enjoy the connection this gives me with each piece and the spontaneity that experimenting with enamel allows.
I exhibit and sell my work widely in the UK as well as internationally.
I run Enamelling and Jewellery Making classes from my studio.
More recently I have introduced printmaking into my practice. Etchings, Screenprints and Monoprints are inspired by my natural surroundings.
