At the age of 15 I got the taste for silversmithing when I accompanied my Grandpa to an evening class, which I continued going to until I left home to study 3D crafts at Brighton University. After graduating in 1999, I set up my workshop at Cross St. Studios in Hove where I worked for the next 11 years.
My work has developed over the years with a strong illustrative theme running through it. My jewellery has gone from miniature kitchen utensils to the intricate miniature drawings on coins, whilst my drawings of kitchen interiors have moved into printmaking and hand embroidering onto vintage textiles.
I am inspired by the simple day to day objects in our homes and like to bring life back to things that have little purpose in the way we live our lives today. My coin jewellery and artwork can be found in homes all over the world.
