I am a designer, handcrafting mainly accessories such as handbags, hats, scarves and belts; these form the basis of my winter collections. I love natural materials, such as the shells I have incorporated in some of my work. Natural forms, another passion and large influence, I have managed to incorporate mostly through my embroidery.
My style is a mixture between traditional techniques and a stylish and elegant touch added to the functionality of practical accessories.

Based in a studio close to the shoreline in Ayrshire I feel naturally drawn to the sea and the beach, and my work is a response to the environment and landscape around me. Discoveries made during beach walks provide a source of fascination and intrigue; flotsam, shells, textures in the sand and rocks bear testament to the relentless energy of the sea and the elements. This plays a major part in informing and inspiring the work I make.
