I am a self employed jeweller and silversmith with a BA(hons) degree from Glasgow School of Art, and a recent graduate from Bishopsland.
I am drawn to textures and irregular patterns in natural forms from my local beaches in Scotland. I’m inspired by lines, movement and irregularity which is present in my research. Sporadic placements of barnacles, the movement and clusters of seaweed clinging to the rocks, the natural placement of clusters of stones, markings in the rocks; organic shapes next to angular lines, rigs corners and grid structures. I love collecting objects from the beach and studying them, isolating an element from the object and adding it to the objects I make. I use chasing and repousse to transfer my drawings onto the silver, and often use scoring and folding to fabricate the shape.
