I am an independent fine artist, printmaker and self taught silversmith. My work is characterized by organic shapes and textures, strong concepts and a sensitivity to colour. I create abstract mixed media paintings and prints. I use a range of silversmithing techniques to design and create silver and gold jewellery by hand. My appreciation for culture, the natural environment and my experience of the world, feeds into my work. With a background working for charitable organisations, my work often explores issues around, social justice, environmental concerns, gender equality and spirituality.
