Biography:

I produce work in silver which is functional and stylish. I come from a traditional silversmithing family business, being trained as a silversmith and chaser. However I enjoy experimenting and developing my work through modelling and drawing. I use materials such as card and plastic, which often leads to developing work which is created by de-constructing from the whole, rather than adding elements.
