I am a weaver and I live and work in Westray Orkney. I trained at Shetland College on their Contemporary Textiles course.
I enjoy the whole process of weaving from the initial idea, through the designing the warp and setting up of the loom to the actual weaving and then the grand finale of taking the textile off the loom and finishing it.
Contemporary jewellery based on Scotland, using photographs and semi-precious stones to create one-off pieces.
I produce traditional knitwear in yarn sourced in Scotland. I produce 100% Shetland sweaters which can be in fairisle, hand embroidered with leather applique (all of which are individual) or they can be left plain. My 100% Cashmere ranges from scarves and wraps to sweaters in 4ply.
I'm a lampwork bead artist, i make both focal and bead sets for jewellery designers all over the world, my work is bright and colourful. I'm influenced by the beaches and the sea as well as the mountains that are plentiful up here.

My jewellery is inspired by a fascination with optical illusion and how the eye can be deceived. I achieve this by creating pieces which explore the bold, bright colours and shapes of the Op Art movement and how this translated into fashion at the time.
