I am a jewellery designer, curator and educator with over 20 years’ experience in the field. Born in Derry, Northern Ireland, I studied Jewellery and Silversmithing at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee before joining the intensive jewellery training program facilitated by the Crafts Council of Ireland.  I went on to complete an MFA at Indiana University, Bloomington and further training with the Crafts Council of Ireland in their Craft and Design Business Development Program.
 In 2000 I established a workshop in my hometown of Derry. In 2013 I curated the exhibition CultureCraft - Culture in the Making to coincide with the first City of Culture UK being in Derry. In 2014 I curated a second CultureCraft project REclaim|REpurpose comprising of a residency with Boris Bally, exhibition and masterclasses with David Clarke, Bettina Speckner and Soojin Kang.
I continue to develop projects through CultureCraft in addition to my studio work.
