“Luxuriously unconventional, my pieces are uniquely carved and moulded in wax, sometimes with organic components, then cast into precious metal. Each collection has developed in response to the last; a continual process of refining shapes and ideas.

 Beach finds are tools in the process of making; pebbles and bundles of seaweed fill the studio; my inspiration hanging, tied and drying into new twists. Transformed, these cast fragments of ribbon-like kelp and spiny holdfast tendrils now have diamonds in their midst, spicy earth and teal coloured sapphires collected on travels to Sri Lanka, caught in their folds.”
