I started sculpting forms in clay and stone then moved into smaller ceramic mobiles, jewellery, tiles and miscellaneous objects.
Inspired by a love of geometry, arabesque and eastern arts, calligraphy and culture; I try to incorporate found objects, chance and allow mistakes to become results....

I am interested in producing work from a narrative relating to the wearer. This allows me to produce a piece which is directly related to the wearer and is much more than just a decorative object.

My work celebrates the seductive beauty, purity and translucency of porcelain and bone china. I use these precious materials to create a range of jewellery as well as thrown functional work inspired by glimpses of natural wilderness found in urban environments. The work is tactile, individual and made to fit human hands.
Through contemporary stitched jewellery and textiles, I explore the multiple associations of objects, the process of making, and the practise of archiving.
My jewellery pieces are each unique. They suggest ceremony through symbolic forms and mysticism through simultaneously conflicting associations.
We organise and host Arts, Crafts and Food Events in beautiful venues around the North and North-East of Scotland
