Intro
I’m a Jewellery Artist living and working in Warwickshire, England. Studied Design Craft at DeMontfort University and  MA Contemporary Jewellery at Birmingham School of Jewellery, Birmingham University. I work mainly with Bone China and Porcelain to create sculptural one off pieces of jewellery.

Statement

 
Life is like a train of moods, like a string of beads, and as we pass through them, they prove to be many-coloured lenses which paint the world their own hue… / Ralph Waldo Emerson.
 
The fragility of impermanence is the notion that  informs my work. Each piece representing growth, transformation and the fluidity of life.
 
My work uses a multi layered approach, embracing both process and material. Traditionally held concepts about the material allow me to play with contrasting ideas of material perception and an alternative preciousness.
