Growing up in Devon to a family of engineers and artists, and following a BA (Hons) in Silversmithing & Jewellery from The Cass, London, I set up my studio in North London. I have always loved textile techniques and am interested in the challenge of making silver appear like undulating folds of fabric. My work almost always has an historical element - the Elizabethan era with its fine detailing, opulence and dramatic scale has influenced my ‘Ruffle’ collection. I am also interested in architecture and urban landscapes, for their dramatic scale and beauty in repetition.
Combining a variety of materials such as stainless steel mesh-cloth, precious metals and Japanese paper with textile and silversmithing techniques, my collections are made in small batches for galleries and retail shows. Each piece is individually hand made.
I strive to create work that is visually striking, reflecting the spirit of my research - alluding to the past but innovative and timeless.
