Ever since I was seventeen I have loved making jewellery. I believe the brilliant materials, small scale and relationship to the body offer the best way to express the ideas I want to convey. I enjoy exploring the tactile qualities, the scope for colour and three dimensions, the sense of preciousness and permanence and most of all, the intimacy of jewellery. I aim to create work that has a strong artistic identity.
I make all the jewellery myself, so the amount of work I can produce is limited, and the quality is high.
Since establishing my workshop in East Yorkshire in 1975, I have regularly supplied my work to a wide range of the best jewellery shops and galleries in Great Britain, which has included Asprey & Co., Argenta Gallery, Boodle & Dunthorne, Liberty & Co., Scottish Gallery, the Lesley Craze Gallery and the Oxford Gallery.My work has been shown in many national and international exhibitions, some of which are listed below.
