I make mixed metal small work, mainly jewellery, using etching and heat colouring, enjoying the colour contrasts created by putting silver with copper, brass with blue titanium. The jewellery is original, quirky, but very wearable, and I have been selling nationally in leading galleries for many years.
My clocks are etched and created from pieces in different metals to form small pictures with text. They feature animals and birds, the results of a rural childhood and a need for colour. I’m currently developing new ideas and pieces using these techniques combined with other materials.
Customers tell me they like my work for its originality, and that in buying it they have a sense of buying something individual and humorous and beautiful.
