Welcome to my website!  I'm a jeweller living and working in Edinburgh and am based at Coburg House Studios in Leith.  Whilst studying at Edinburgh College of Art, I developed a range of work using predominantly resin and acrylic.  


Inspired by linear shapes found in nature and a love of Japanese pattern, I enjoy using resin as a material as colour is an important aspect of my work.  Particularly influenced by a 1950’s and 1960‘s colour palette, I contrast colour and shape, often playing around with the overall uniformity of the piece.


My most recent work involves inlaying pattern into resin or just a simple line, giving the quality of a drawn line.  This body of work involves mould making and casting, then through techniques such as saw piercing, filing and laborious sanding, the inlaid pattern is revealed. I produce colourful bold pieces including earrings, necklaces, bangles and cufflinks.
