I work from Monymusk in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. I grew up on the west coast island of Jura and the Mull of Kintyre and have been influenced by my surroundings. Many years of experiencing the seasonal changes while beach-combing these often wild and windy coastlands seem to return in my organic jewellery designs.
Moving to Aberdeen in 1974 I studied at Grays School of Art specialising in jewellery making before devoting several years to furniture restoration, antiques and working in the well loved vegetarian cafe, JAWS. I returned to designing and making jewellery in 1991.
My technique of fusing precious metals, sometimes enhanced with the addition of semi precious stones, produces the unique, organic results that are seen in my work. The pieces can be seen at various outlets and exhibitions in Aberdeenshire and I am happy to consider private commissions. You can meet me by visiting The Studio in Monymusk.
