Personal Statement

I make delicate jewellery and small-scale three-dimensional objects working with thread, fabric, paper and metal. I trained as a jeweller and then in textiles, and am interested in creating work that crosses disciplines and sits on the edge of textiles and craft objects. I use self-generated techniques with thread and metal and enjoy playing with the perception of scale by creating a sense of the monumental in the miniscule. Recent work explores capturing memories or a sense of place through abstract forms and use of materials. Inspiration can be from old buildings and their histories, or walks in local woods and forests.
I have had an established practice as a jeweller for many years, exhibiting my work worldwide. Recent exhibitions of both jewellery and textile art have been in Italy, Portugal, China,
