Silver jewellery designed and handmade. Prints of paintings of local landscapes - reflecting the shapes and colours found in nature and landscape.
I am a local designer maker and artist. My work reflects the simple rhythms and shapes found in nature and is inspired by local landscapes and seascapes, which satisfy my love of colour. The elements of nature seen in my artwork are translated into design elements for my jewellery. I work from my barn studio and sell through galleries, shops and online. Prints of my original canvas paintings are available as Giclee prints, canvases prints and also greetings cards. I have a BA Hons in 3D design and I have always worked in aspects of the design industry. I love the simplicity of Scandinavian design and try to absorb this approach into my work. I am also inspired by the Arts & Crafts movement and their interpretation of nature in design. My jewellery is made with sterling silver, gold and copper inclusions, semi precious gemstones and enamel details. I first discovered my love of silver jewellery design and making when I spent two years studying during my A levels. I moved to Australia in 1999 and whilst living there I attended a studio, where I furthered my training. I am always exploring new techniques and design processes to include in my work.
