I am a jewellery designer/maker based in Leeds, UK.

I work mainly in silver but often add texture and colour to my work by using other metals such as gold and titanium and glass and semi-precious beads. Ideas evolve naturally as one design leads into another but external influences come from art, architecture and nature.

I completed a Fine Art and Craft Diploma at Jacob Kramer College in Leeds, specializing in jewellery, and then went on to set up a small workshop with the help of an individual award from Yorkshire and Humberside Arts. I have been producing work since then for private commissions and for exhibition in galleries in Yorkshire and the North-East, and also for shows in other parts of the country.
