I graduated with a BA Hons in Metalwork and Jewellery in 2007. I then gained great support in refining my design and making practice during the one-year postgraduate course at Bishopsland Workshops. The discovery of chasing and repoussť has allowed me to approach a piece in the same way as a painting. In my work the chasing provides the beginnings of the overall form of the piece. The metal is then shaped on wood as I work from the main focal lines of the patterns. Recently I have been using engraving to compliment the depth in the chased work. Myriad points of engraved light ripple the surface of the pieces to enhance the character of water.

I am excited by the sensual and rich forms that can be created in metal and believe my nature is reflected through my work. It is a delight to be absorbed in every stage from design to the finished piece. The rhythmic process of making, using hand-raising techniques, can push the metal to its limits and emphasises the fluid vitally of each form.
