My designs are inspired by my rural Scottish environment - starry skies, changing landscapes, horizons, the sea. Movement of line and tactility are important features of my work, and some pieces incorporate a further sensory element in the form of aromatic beads that contain the perfume or essential oil of the wearer's choice.
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.
I am a award winning photographer and artist. We also make handmade quilts and crafts. We have a small island Art Gallery, which is open to the public.
