The value of making work by hand is integral to everything I produce. With a skill-set ranging from fine art drawing and painting, to design and the fine craft skills of jewellery, metalsmithing and weaving, I can produce works that are unique and timeless. I am passionate and dedicated to the work I make, whether it’s a ring or a panting, no matter the piece, I give it my all and produce work of high quality.
