I studied Illustration at Hull College of Art and gained a First Class Honours Degree in Graphic Design in 1987. I spent many years freelancing, illustrating childrens’ books, educational books and cards. One day I looked around and realised my children had grown up, I wasn’t enjoying my illustration work and felt I needed a change of direction so I booked myself onto a jewellery making course and was hooked.

My jewellery is made from silver, copper, brass and occasionally gold. I recently became a member of the Art House in Wakefield and refreshed my print making skills which sparked my exploration using wood, paint and print in my pieces. I enjoy exploring textures and shapes and work mostly in an intuitive way rather than any planned design, although I am forever doodling, so some work springs from my sketchbooks.

My jewellery studio is based in Wakefield, Yorkshire where I also have space to explore my drawing and printmaking as well as run small workshops.

If you are interested in a commission or coming along for a beginners jewellery workshop or trying out lino cut printing or drawing, please get in touch below.
