From my studio in the lovely historic Brougham Hall, Penrith, I work primarily with Fine (Pure) Silver and 22ct Gold, with a focus on texture, movement and form. Tactile, distinctive, natural elegance.
My inspirational starting point involves preliminary sketching and photography, which results in a theme. Individual pieces tend to evolve through the making process so that no two pieces are completely the same and each has a life of its own. I like to feel that I am not completely in charge of the end result and tend to let the metal form its own design character. It is an instinctive process.
