I make timber structures using traditional and contemporary techniques. My designs are unique and tailored to suit individual commissions. Much of what I make is of a large scale and constructed using green oak. Completed work includes tree-benches, lych gates, sculptural objects, play areas, stage sets and bridges.

I hand make contemporary jewellery which echoes the past.
I love collections of old objects like in junk shops, attics and museums. I have spent time travelling through South America and the west coast of Scotland researching my own family ties and through this, sourcing inspiration.
Unique gold, silver & gemstone jewellery, handmade in Orkney.
My jewellery explores space and movement around the wearers body.
Contrasting colour and texture fascinates me, and I seek to manipulate this by working with silver, oxidised silver, 18ct yellow gold, and semi-precious stones such as garnet, peridot and citrine. Hammered wire is often contrasted against smooth cupped sheet silver, and 18ct yellow gold will be found scattered amongst oxidised silver links.
